CBRE’s latest Americas Investor Intentions Survey finds investors showing a clear shift in risk tolerance and a preference for secondary markets—especially Austin—this year. As case in point, a record 30% of investors are targeting opportunistic and distressed assets in 2021, up from 16% in 2020. And a larger majority (72%) seek opportunities in one or more alternative asset classes.
“Investors in the Americas appear more aggressive and will accept more risk to achieve higher returns,” said Chris Ludeman, CBRE’s global president of capital markets. “This is likely due to a stable economic environment, supported by government stimulus, and the belief that available capital will remain abundant for the foreseeable future, as well as intense competition among investors.
“While the equity markets have signaled rising inflation expectations, at the time of the survey commercial real estate investors did not appear to be overly concerned in the near term.”
