JLL's Investment Intensity Index compares the volume of direct real estate investment in a city over a three-year period relative to the city's current economic size. The Index provides a measure of real estate market liquidity, as well as a useful barometer of a city's overall 'health', highlighting cities that are punching above their weight in terms of attracting real estate investment. Covering over 300 cities around the world, the latest JLL Investment Intensity Index reveals the increasing attractiveness of 'New World Cities': transparent, innovation-oriented cities which are accounting for a growing share of global commercial real estate investment.
