SINGAPORE, 10 March 2015 – JLL Asia Pacific is the number one real estate investment advisory team in the region for the fourth year running, according to recently released independent data from Real Capital Analytics (RCA). JLL, which has been ranked in overall first place in Asia Pacific since RCA began releasing data in 2011, also emerged as regional leaders in the office and hotel sectors.
In 2014, JLL’s capital markets team advised on USD $16.1 billion of real estate investment transactions in Asia Pacific, which equates to a 26.4 percent market share in the region.
Stuart Crow, Head of Asia Pacific Capital Markets at JLL, said: “The Asia Pacific region is growing rapidly and global investors continue to seek real estate assets to strengthen their investment portfolios. Demand for Asian real estate continues to be focussed on the larger markets in the region and across a range of sectors, particularly those driven by the Asian consumer, and JLL ranked particularly well in the office and hotel sectors.
“JLL’s unique regional platform continues to support this demand from investors and we’re thrilled to, once again, be recognised as the number one real estate advisory service in the world’s fastest growing region. This year is set to be equally successful with a very strong start to 2015 and I look forward to maintaining our leading position in the RCA rankings for the fifth consecutive year.”
Anuj Puri, Chairman & Country Head, JLL India says, ”JLL’s leading presence and profile in the APAC region is amply borne out by this recognition.
