Colliers Research - 2020 Report US Election Implications on Global Real Estate

A high-level look at the projected impact of publicly-stated policy positions and proposals on the US, APAC and EMEA markets.

As what is known as the U.S. election “season” closes on November 3, the implications of these results on commercial real estate, regardless of the outcome, may differ widely depending on the region and area of focus.

To provide a thoughtful and global perspective on what is the most closely watched contest in generations, Colliers’ global research leadership has extensively reviewed the key economic, market and real estate implications of the U.S. elections on the U.S. itself as well as the Asia Pacific (APAC) and Europe/Middle East/Africa (EMEA) regions. 

In this first edition of our two-part series, published during the election’s final hours as both candidates and their parties are making final strides for the top position, we take a high-level look at the projected impact of each candidate’s publicly stated policy positions/proposals. President Donald Trump and presidential candidate Joseph Biden maintain distance on a number of issues, although common themes of focus emerge. International trade and climate change are consistent threads among all three regions.

Report highlights for Asia Pacific:
  • International trade
  • Multinational Corporations (MNCs) presence in greater China and other APAC markets
  • Property investment, currency movements and capital flows
