In terms of property sectors, the Hotels Investment Intensity Top 20 highlights the attraction of the world’s most connected gateway cities, such as London, Miami, Hong Kong (7th), New York, and Dubai. Hong Kong also has high retail and logistics investment intensity, 16th and 4th in the world, respectively.

Denis Ma, head of research at JLL in Hong Kong, said Hong Kong remains one of the most attractive real estate markets for investors in Asia.
