IPD report shows return on commercial investment figures | 30 April 2012

A new survey suggests that global commercial property delivered a healthy return for investors last year.

The IPD Global Annual Index, cited by finfacts.ie, suggests that a 9.8 per cent total return was delivered globally in 2011, while Ireland itself managed a 0.6 per cent return in Q1 2012.

The report found a number of varying figures for each market which, according to pie-mag.com, has ‘big implications’ for investors and managers with global real estate exposure.

Only a small number of markets (Australia, Canada, South Africa and more) managed to exceed the global average while the US, perhaps the biggest market, churned out double-digit returns for the second year running.

Furthermore, the report suggested that at a sector level, industrial and residential property performed very well while office, for the second consecutive year, was the worst performing sector.

Peter Hobbs, senior director of Group Business Development at IPD, commented on the figures: “Of particular interest is the divergence between the two largest markets, the US and Japan.

“In the US, continued yield compression delivered strong (14.5 per cent) double digit returns for the second consecutive year, whilst in Japan returns remained flat (at 3.5 per cent), due to further value declines and low income yields,” he added.
