in Asia real estate

Asia commercial real estate guide

Real estate has always been an attractive investment class, not only to institutional investors but also to family offices and High Net Worth Individuals (HNWIs). As part of an investment portfolio, real estate assets can yield high returns, offer diversification for the investment portfolio and hedge against inflation. However, investing in real estate, especially internationally in emerging countries, can be challenging due to differences in regulations, requirements and tax treatments across different jurisdictions.

At Withersworldwide, we have assisted clients for decades in structuring their real estate deals involving a wide range of asset classes from hotels and resorts, office and industrial buildings, malls, self-storage spaces to farms, heritage and residential properties. Whether you are acquiring, building, managing, leasing or divesting, we pride ourselves as trusted advisors who can assist you to achieve your investment goals in the most efficient way. As our client, you can expect tailored legal and tax solutions from due diligence, negotiations, financing, structuring joint-ventures to dispute resolution.

It is with this view which we have set out to create a practical guide for those looking to invest internationally in commercial real estate. In this edition, we focus on the hottest commercial real estate investment destinations in Asia, namely China, Hong Kong, Singapore and Japan.

We hope you will find the guides useful for understanding the requirements and key considerations for investing into commercial real estate. To discuss further, please get in touch with your usual contact at Withersworldwide, or any of the authors featured.
