The likelihood of future interest rate rises is prompting more emphasis on asset diversification and stability of income as investors move beyond traditional yield- based performance, says CBRE head of global research Nick Axford. 

Mr Axford said although major economies globally were growing, they were “late in the cycle”, which signalled rising interest rates over the coming years.

The Asia Pacific has emerged as the strongest region for economic growth globally, with areas such as healthcare, student accommodation and debt, expected to be see in an increase in investment, as returns from the traditional areas like office buildings and shopping centres come under pressure.

“The world has changed, it’s not just about core markets anymore — there is a big shift towards alternative sectors,” he said.
