Singapore Dominates Asia Pacific Flows: Chart

By on February 12th, 2019

Cross-border buyers from Singapore became the largest Asian commercial property investors in Asia Pacific during 2018, representing five of the top 10 capital flows, the latest edition of Asia Pacific Capital Trends shows. Singapore’s top position comes as capital exports from China, the number one source in 2016 and 2017, have slowed down.

Australia and China were the biggest recipients of Singaporean capital in 2018. China was the source of the single biggest flow in the region, putting $6.1 billion in commercial real estate in Hong Kong. Hong Kong’s flow back to China dropped by more than one-half in 2018, to $2.2 billion.
