The CBRE Americas Investor Intentions Survey 2017 captures the investment sentiment of nearly 1,000 investors focused on the Americas in 2017. While investors largely expect to maintain their 2016 activity levels, they also intend to retreat on the risk curve, becoming more conservative in strategy and risk appetite. This, however, is counterbalanced by their search for yield. Echoing concerns raised at the beginning of 2015, investors perceive global economic shocks and rising interest rates as the greatest threats to property markets. They also continue to have concerns about asset pricing.
