Transparency in Global Property Markets Rises

By - Wednesday 17 October 2012

Recovering global property markets have prompted renewed impetus to transparency improvements following a slowdown in progress during the financial crisis in 2008 and 2009, according to a biennial index produced by Jones Lang LaSalle and LaSalle Investment Management.

Almost 90% of markets have registered advances in property transparency during the past two years, driven by improving market fundamentals data and performance measurement, combined with better governance of listed vehicles.

The 2012 Global Real Estate Transparency Index, a proprietary Jones Lang LaSalle survey that calculates transparency in 97 real estate markets worldwide by weighting 83 different factors, provides investors and corporate occupiers with data and analysis critical to transacting, owning and operating in global markets. The Index also assists governments and other industry organisations interested in improving transparency.

The survey shows that the USA ranks as the world's most transparent property market this year, followed closely by the UK and Australia.

Also in the 'Highly Transparent' category are the Netherlands, New Zealand, Canada, France, Finland, Sweden and Switzerland.

Among the leading improvers in the survey are the MIST growth markets (Mexico, Indonesia, South Korea and Turkey).

Regionally, Latin America has seen the strongest progress in transparency, thanks particularly to improvements in Brazil and Mexico.

“While the world economy is still in recovery, the 2012 Index reveals that real estate investors and corporate occupiers are widening their activity across a broader range of markets.  This cross-border activity encourages faster rates of transparency improvement in growth and emerging economies as the markets open up further to international competition and their real estate sectors embrace global best practices,” said Jacques Gordon, global head of strategy for LaSalle Investment Management, the investment management arm of Jones Lang LaSalle.
