FY21: Retail Investment Review

Retail investment activity has continued to improve from the low sales volumes recorded at the peak of the pandemic in Australia (March to June 2020).

August 23, 2021

In our FY21 financial year review of the retail investment market we provide an overview of trends in the last year and four key themes shaping the market in 2021. Retail transaction activity has recovered strongly since mid-2020, with volumes 11% higher in FY21, reaching $7.3 billion. There was a skew towards larger transactions (>$100 million) in the final quarter of FY21 as investor confidence continued to improve.

Four key themes:

  1. How will the retail ownership profile change? 
  2. How will shopping centres evolve to incorporate alternate uses?
  3. How will a thawing of global retail capital markets impact Australia?
  4. What’s in store for the retail spending recovery?
