The globalisation of the real estate market continues to change the face of the sector in Australia, providing both opportunities and increased competition for players in the industry.
There are also significant structural changes occurring as entities such as superannuation funds and private equity firms, including domestic and overseas players, enter the market. In a highly competitive environment for quality assets, the ability to execute complex deals swiftly and successfully is essential.
