China Insurance Funds Target Singapore Properties
Brief:Singapore joins other high transparency markets such as the UK, US, Canada and Australia as key global investment targets of Chinese insurance institutions.
Singapore is China's 5th-largest overseas destination for real estate investment using Chinese insurance funds, from 2007 - 2013.

According to the latest research CBRE, Singapore joins other high transparency markets such as the UK, US, Canada and Australia as key global investment targets of Chinese insurance institutions, thanks to the attractive yields high-end office properties in these core cities can produce in today's low-interest rate environment.

CBRE estimates a total of US$14.4 billion in Chinese insurance funds available for overseas real estate investment.

The trend of overseas real estate investment in China has also risen in the recent years due to limited investment channels in China, abundant liquidity, appreciation of the yuan, and the relatively lower valuation of overseas assets in the years following the 2008 financial crisis.
