A Tale of Two Outcomes: The U.S. Election and Implications for Global Real Estate

Download Report

The 2020 U.S. Presidential contest between President Donald Trump and challenger Joe Biden offers voters clear alternatives on a number of key issues. Specifically, the two candidates’ positions/proposals on international trade, taxation, immigration, climate change, healthcare and the COVID-19 pandemic have broad implications for the global commercial real estate market.

In “A Tale of Two Outcomes: The U.S. Election and Implications for Global Real Estate,” the first part of a two-part series, we take a high-level look at the potential impact of these policies both here in the U.S. and around the globe.

In the second edition, to be published following the certification of the results, we will further explore the ultimate winner’s policy approaches and the associated economic, business, market and real estate impacts.
