Best Property Advisory/Consultancy
Colliers International has been voted by its clients as Best Property Advisory/Consultancy in the 2013 Real Estate Investment World (REIW) Asia Awards for Excellence, the region’s most prestigious awards program for real estate players. The awards honour companies that make outstanding contributions to the Asian real estate industry in terms of growth, performance, and adaptability to changing market conditions and client needs.
Piers Brunner, Chief Executive Officer, Asia, Colliers International, attributed the firm’s success to its core values of service and expertise. “These core values are the foundation of the service quality we provide. Our specialists seek to understand our clients’ business needs, and come up with innovative and integrated solutions that exceed their expectations as we help them grow their businesses.”
Brunner added that the company had recently repositioned the investment services group in Asia with key executive appointments. The newly restructured Asia Capital Market and Investment Services Division is now led by industry veteran Terence Tang. “There has been a significant growth of institutional capital in Asia and we are seeing more Asian private wealth capital looking for investment opportunities. Hence, the investment advisory services needs to be regionalized and institutionalized as it is all about serving the interests of our clients. Having an integrated regional structure will help us serve our clients even better. This is also part of a broader global strategy to provide our clients with the best level of investment advice in the world.”
The REIW awards were presented at the REIW Asia Industry Gala Dinner in Singapore, and attended by more than 250 leading industry players. For the second year in a row, the awards were presented during the (REIW Asia) Conference, the region’s largest industry convention, which showcases the strategies, players and companies within real estate investment management, development and finance.
