Our Global Capital Markets and Research teams are pleased to announce the latest release of our market-leading International Investment Atlas, launched this morning at an exclusive client event at MIPIM, the international real estate show. The report provides an introduction to the world’s key commercial real estate investment markets in 2013 and an indication of activity in 2014.
This year, the scope of the report has altered to include four separate parts, including a Global Summary as well as three Regional Market Profiles for The Americas, Asia Pacific and EMEA, which include page by page country overviews totalling 55 global countries.

Momentum is building as confidence returns
Demand is broadening to new areas and sectors
A rapid but front-loaded recovery is now underway
Change, not growth, is set to drive medium term demand and performance
Investors are well advised to buy the stock – not the market
