“Looking ahead, while increased global uncertainty will continue to affect investors, corporate confidence is still generally high and, allied to the changes in demand being wrought by new living and working practices, this underpins a fundamentally robust outlook for good quality real estate. Our current forecast is for global volumes to rise 17% over the year to mid-2016, reaching a new record high of $1.1 tn - excluding development - led again by growth in Europe and North America.” -- Carlo Barel di Sant’Albano, CEO, Global Capital Markets, Cushman & Wakefield

“Europe is still a magnet for capital from all regions but North America has actually been the fastest growing target for foreign capital – a fact reflected in the dominance of US cities in this year’s report.  Fourteen of the top 25 cities are in the USA, while Germany, the second most popular country by number, has just three cities making the list. Investment into these US cities grew by 32% compared to just 7% growth for non-US cities in the top 25.” - David Hutchings, Head of EMEA Investment Strategy, Cushman & Wakefield

“Outward investment by US players is also dominating global capital flows, accounting for 42% of all foreign investment between regions in the past year and growing by 25%. Asian investment globally comes in at number two, with a 25% market share, as investors’ search for greater global diversification has, if anything, been accelerated by fears of a regional slowdown but has also become more focused with the US a notable winner.”  - David Hutchings, Head of EMEA Investment Strategy, Cushman & Wakefield
