The globalisation of the real estate market is changing the face of the sector in Australia and providing both opportunity and increased competition for players in the industry.
An increase in foreign investment in the Australian real estate market, coinciding with a new strategy for domestic A-REITS, is altering the local landscape, as the level of demand for quality large-scale investment in Australia makes a strong comeback.
There are also significant structural changes occurring as entities such as superannuation funds and private equity firms enter the market, including domestic and overseas players. In this environment of renewed competition for quality assets, the ability to execute complex deals swiftly and successfully is essential.
