Vietnam Real Estate Market – Time of Opportunity

7 Nov

VNRESavills Vietnam together with Savills Japan will organize a seminar about Vietnam real estate investment opportunities on 25th November 2011 at Tokyo American Club.
The delegation from Savills Vietnam is led by Neil MacGregor – Deputy Managing Director. Neil has 10 years experience in the Vietnam Real estate market and he has completed some of the largest investment transactions in Vietnam, including the sale of Pacific Place in Hanoi in 2010 with a transaction value of around US$90 million. Neil has worked with a wide range of Japanese clients in the Vietnamese market, over the last 10 years, and is looking forward to providing a useful conduit for further Japanese investor interest in Vietnam.
Regardless of domestic developers’ difficulties in sourcing funds, foreign investors, especially Asian investors, have continued to see the potential opportunities in Vietnam’s real estate market. Vietnam stands out from the region as a stable investment environment at a time of considerable turmoil in other markets.
Being an emerging market with favourable demographics, vast skilled labour resources and a strategic location in the region, Vietnam still has much to offer. In recent years a number of foreign investors have been actively acquiring real estate assets in Vietnam. Investors have seen opportunities in office buildings, retail developments, mixed use development, the rapidly growing residential sector, as well as the hospitality sector including city centre hotels and coastal resorts. With the tide of manufacturing interest in Vietnam set to grow as the global economy seeks growth, and Asian demand reaches new heights, the Vietnamese industrial real estate sector is also set to be more attractive than in the past.  The rapidly growing retail sector and rapid growth in consumer spending is going to set new challenges for distribution in Vietnam, whilst offering huge opportunities for investors active in the logistics sector.
Together with Savills Japan, Savills Vietnam will organize the seminar on 25th November 2011 at the Tokyo American Club, utilizing the strength of the Savills network in the Asia Pacific region. Savills’ highly respected investment team, with their deep pool of knowledge and experience in this complex market, will provide an overview of Vietnam’s macro-economics; an overview of the Vietnam real estate market; provide insight into how to invest into Vietnam: investment guidelines, opportunities and challenges, investment outlook; as well as introduce a range of specific investment opportunities available to investors & developers.  The seminar will aim to provide participants with a comprehensive insight into Vietnam’s economic and investment opportunities, especially in the real estate industry.
In the field of real estate investment consultancy and M&A, Savills have a strong dedicated team of experts with in-depth experience and relationships with investors and developers, including domestic, regional and global players. In 2010, Savills Vietnam successfully brokered a number of real estate deals, with total transaction value exceeding US$100 million. Operating as the one-stop exchange for real estate investors and developers for deal sourcing, Savills Vietnam is in the best position to direct capital flows to where they are needed most. As the leading real estate service provider with more than 15-years experience in the Vietnam market, Savills Vietnam is proud to organize this seminar to create a conduit for attracting more opportunities for investment from overseas and to further develop the potential of Vietnam.
