Global Investment in Income-Producing Assets Slows in H1, RCA Reports Shows

By on August 8th, 2017

Global transaction activity for income-producing assets slowed 8% in H1’17 and 9% in Q2’17 compared to the same periods last year, the new edition of Global Capital Trends shows. However, recent indicators point to positive moment for the rest of 2017. The U.K. regained its number one position in Europe, Asian markets are recording strong growth and the pending deal pipeline in many countries exceeds Q2’17 completed deals.

At a global level, no income-producing property type recorded growth in the first half compared to last year, although the industrial sector slowed just 3% and was the only sector to record positive year-over-year growth in Q2’17.
