The world’s ageing population would drive real estate transaction volumes to surpass $1 trillion globally by the year 2020, up from $700 billion in 2015, according to a new report. Institutions are also set to increase their market share, which currently sits at 20 percent, driven by the need to cater for the ageing global population’s investment requirements, says the analysis from international real estate services firm JLL.
The major influencers in this trend are set to be international investors, with cross border activity expected to exceed 50 percent of all investment activity by 2020 to over $500 billion annually, with the biggest increase coming from capital moving between the regions. David Green-Morgan, global capital markets research director at JLL, pointed out that by 2050 there would be more people over the age of 55 than the entire population of the world in 1950. ‘This demographic impact will have a profound effect on real estate investment strategies with the amount of private equity capital targeting direct real estate set to increase by over 500 percent,’ he stated.
