Is it time to consider joint ventures and access new capital sources?

Is it time to diversify your portfolio and enter new cities?
Asia Pacific is home to the most dynamic urban centers in the world. Increasingly, institutional capital is hunting for opportunity beyond gateway cities. Cities that can attract talent, and develop flexible, sustainable, technology-driven assets will attract institutional capital.
Is it time to repurpose your assets to better accommodate new ways of working?
