Recent years have seen increased international property investment activity from both traditional property investors and new property investors (e.g.: Asian players). This paper uses the Real Capital Analytics database of over $7 trillion in global property transactions over 2007-2017 to assess the changing dynamic of international property investors in recent years; particularly highlighting the increasing role of new international property investors (e.g.: Asian pension funds, sovereign wealth funds and property funds) as they seek to grow and diversify their property portfolios both locally and internationally. The strategic property investment implications are also highlighted.
