African markets are in the spotlight in the just-released Broll Report 2013/2014, as local and international investors alike increasingly see South Africa and its neighbours as being ripe for new growth and development.
“Indeed, Africa is internationalising more than ever before,” says Broll Property Group CEO Malcolm Horne.
“And as new markets open up in Africa, and others evolve and mature, access to the latest market data is crucial for optimal decision-making.”
The Broll Report 2013/2014 is an annual assessment of property trends, both historically and predicted, in South Africa and other key African markets, from the perspective of office, retail, industrial, leisure and residential trends. Listed property is also scrutinised, as are new approaches to core disciplines like property management.
Multi-sector reports on the property markets in Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mauritius, Nigeria, Rwanda and Namibia form a key section of the report.
“Broll is able to comment on the property market throughout Africa due to our exposure in Africa, with more than US$10 billion in total assets under management in all operations on the continent,” he adds, pointing out that Broll operates in 17 African countries.
Developers, investors and property managers focused on the South African market in particular will find much to use in the report, with in-depth analyses of office, retail and industrial sectors in key urban markets like Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal and the Western Cape.
The aim of the report is to present key market trends and sector intelligence in a clear, practical way – for both the global and local property markets.
Broll is part of the global CBRE Affiliate Network, a relationship that merges Broll’s local and African market knowledge with international market exposure and insight.
