White Paper: Mind The Data Gap Members Only
From leveraging data to manage traffic flow in Asia to monitoring workplace productivity in the US, both public sector and private organizations increasingly rely on analytical tools to generate data-driven insights that enable better decisions and improve internal operations. Analytics initiatives often focus on technology to support data collection, storage, processing, and access. However, business intelligence, data warehousing, and big data, while essential, are simply a means to an end. The real value of data and analytics derives from the insights it yields.

Report: China60 Members Only
JLL has been tracking China’s rapid urbanisation for a decade. In the three years since we last reported on these markets, the landscape has changed as China moves from fast, investment-fuelled growth to a more sustainable model of higher-value, consumption-based growth – the 'new normal'. Quality of life, cultural assets and environmental considerations are coming to the fore as cities compete for talent and businesses.

Report: The Big Eight for UK Real Estate Members Only
Our world is changing at a rapid pace. Trends which we are already experiencing today will gain much greater momentum in the next 15-20 years. For businesses, governments and other organisations that take a long-term view to investment and planning, unpicking existing and potential trends is becoming increasingly imperative. With technological innovation, climate change, resource constraints and changing demographics spelling disruption or even revolution across a range of sectors, this is about more than risk management. It is about innovating ahead of anticipated changes and adapting your organisation so that it is at least resilient, and at best thriving, in the long-term.

Report: Where in the World? Manufacturing Index 2015 Members Only
Deciding where to locate manufacturing facilities is a longterm decision that businesses often live with for 20-40 years, so getting the location right is critical. While countries from Asia Pacific (APAC) still dominate the top half of our Index, highlighting the importance of the region as a global manufacturing powerhouse, there remains some underlying volatility. Rising labour and operational Costs in China, the world’s largest manufacturer in terms of output are adding to the attractiveness of lower Cost regions with Malaysia, Indonesia and Vietnam all ranking strongly as a result, the latter topping our Growth Index.

Report: US Industrial Investor Survey Spring 2015 Members Only
Investors indicate that the U.S. industrial market will continue to remain strong throughout the remainder of 2015 and into 2016, consistent with the continued growth of industrial and economic fundamentals. The year 2015 is expected to be the strongest year for the U.S. economy since at least 2005. Real gross domestic product (GDP) is forecast to increase at a 3.3 percent rate, roughly 50 percent faster than the 2.2 percent average since the recovery began in mid-2009. The drivers of growth are consumer spending, business investment and, to a lesser extent, housing. Additionally, declining oil prices are a net positive for the economy, boosting the income available for discretionary purchases and reducing costs in a wide range of industries.

Report: Mind the Gaps Members Only
Millennials overwhelmingly believe that business needs a reset in terms of paying as much attention to people and purpose as it does products and profit. Seventy-five percent of Millennials believe businesses are too fixated on their own agendas and not focused enough on helping to improve society. Deloitte’s fourth global Millennial survey asked tomorrow’s leaders, what they think of leadership today, how businesses operate and impact wider society, and which individual characteristics define effective leaders. The survey uncovered several noteworthy gaps: between the ambitions of young professionals in emerging markets and developed markets; and between Millennial men’s and women’s attitudes and aspirations toward business and leadership; and between Millennials making the most and the least use of social media.

Report: Digital Disruption in Commercial Real Estate Members Only
Rapid advances in technology are poised to disrupt many of the sectors that anchor Canada’s economy. The impact will be felt across the country, yet many Canadian businesses aren’t ready for it – including the real estate industry. Today, digital disruption is all-pervasive, with technology integrated into our everyday lives. Digital innovation is changing economies and markets, reinventing the way business is done in all industries across the globe. The level of technology advancement organizations are facing today is akin to the industrial revolution of the early 1900s – and it’s accelerating our businesses and operating models. No industry is untouched. Some have been impacted immediately, and others, such as real estate, are just now feeling the profound influence of the digital transformation that has been taking place over the past two decades.

Report: Chinese investment in U.S. real estate Members Only
According to the 2014 Association of Foreign Investors in Real Estate (AFIRE) survey, more than two-thirds of respondents consider the United States the most stable and secure real estate investment destination. Going forward, 68 percent of respondents plan to increase their portfolio size in the United States. Chinese investors have been riding the U.S. commercial real estate (CRE) wave, perhaps motivated by the gradual shift in the Chinese government’s policy to promote outbound investments and their preference for investing in real estate that provides comparatively modest and stable returns. From January 2005 to March 2014, Chinese investors made direct acquisitions of $8.5 billion in U.S. CRE. Of this, $5.8 billion has been invested in the 15-month period, January 2013 through March 2014. Consequently, China has emerged as the second-largest foreign investor, after Canada, with an eight percent share of the total cross-border investments in U.S. CRE.
