We are pleased to share our 2017 Global Real Estate Strategic Outlook where we explore investment opportunities globally through the lens of different investors, providing some comparison of how the markets may unfold in 2017. This publication serves as an accompaniment to our 2017 Regional Real Estate Strategic Outlooks which examine real estate trends in Asia Pacific, Europe and the United States and provide investment ideas based on capital market conditions and underlying fundamentals.
In our view, global growth is expected to accelerate to 3.5% for 2017, versus 3.1% in 2016. There are a number of tailwinds for the global economy, such as low interest rates, healthy household balance sheets and potential cuts in U.S. corporate tax rates which could spur sub-par U.S. productivity and support world growth. At the same time, there are a few headwinds such as the risk to capital values from rising interest rates to the political and regulatory backdrop. Against this backdrop, there are several factors that contribute to our optimistic outlook for the asset class.
