AMP Capital expects global investor demand for real assets to continue to strengthen in 2016, with a number of themes set to influence the sector. These include: intense competition for ‘trophy’ assets and high quality Australian property; the US Federal Reserve’s movements on rates; increased M&A (mergers and acquisitions) activity and privatisation; a ‘lower for longer’ yield environment; urbanisation and infrastructure spend.
