According to our 2010 International Investment Atlas, which monitors investment flows in commercial property in 56 countries, global investment volumes are forecast to rise 30% this year, hitting $478bn (€362bn), led by a reviving US market. This latest report suggests that this figure is likely to be even higher if the economic recovery remains on track. In 2009, global investment volumes fell 23% to $365bn (€270bn), their lowest since 2003. However as markets started to recover and global liquidity improved, investment volumes ended the year on a much stronger note – rising 104% between the first and second halves of the year.
