Investing in the real estate of tomorrow

Real estate is a continuously evolving asset class with structural trends creating opportunities in parts of the market and challenges in others.

Increasingly sophisticated technology, rapid urbanisation and shifts in demographics have fundamentally changed consumer behaviours and altered the needs and uses for real estate. This evolution gives rise to opportunities for investors to benefit from the ongoing divergence across property types, underpinning the need for an active and selective investment approach.

Powerful long-term themes shaping the sector

Rapid development of AI and rising mobile data consumption are fuelling demand for more data storage, higher computing power and cloud infrastructure, which is translating into pricing power for data centres and cell towers. The Global DataSphere* is expected to more than double in size from 2022 to 2026 according to IDC.

How do I use property in my portfolio?
