Green Shoots Firm Roots
Investment sales have been rising steadily throughout the year. The jump in transactions has been three-fold from S$ 304 million in the first quarter of 2009 to S$ 3.6 billion at the end of the third quarter. While we expect total transactions this year to be far below the 2008 total of S$17.9 billion, coming in the wake of the global financial crisis, it will still be a credible result. Nearly half of the transactions have come from the residential sector while the commercial real estate sector makes up the remainder.
New Consequences of Getting Procurement Wrong
EU procurement legislation has become a pervasive consideration in the purchasing activities of Local Authorities. The legislation (in the form of a series of Regulations) and as supplemented by case law, sets out the procedures which public bodies must adhere to when purchasing services, goods or public works.

CFO Briefing - Sustainability as a Competitive Advantage
Exploring the real estate profit potential of climate regulation
Climate legislation, a key aspect of President Obama’s policy agenda, was narrowly passed by the House on June 26 and is set for review by the Senate this fall. It centers on a cap-and-trade scheme similar to those used for carbon emissions in Europe and acid rain in the United States. While much uncertainty remains about the legislation’s final form, political pundits and corporate executives think passage of a cap-and-trade bill will likely occur by year-end.

continue, as underlying factors provide compelling reasons for multinational corporations (MNCs) to seek out new locations for their R&D activities. This Corporate Briefing On Global Research &
Development provides an overview of the key R&D locations worldwide and highlights some of the factors underlying this trend.
