Markets show resilience

Investor and corporate occupier activity acros​s the world’s dominant commercial real estate markets has held up well over the past couple of quarters, despite various economic and political challenges. For the full-year 2016, investment and leasing volumes are likely to be only 5%-10% below the exceptional levels of 2015, with some upside potential in prospect for 2017.
