Securing GCC Real Estate Funding

A number of challenges lay ahead for GCC real estate developers as the combination of lower oil prices, stronger currencies, regional instability and global capital market volatility begin to impact on real estate prices and capital availability.

Emerge Capital's view is that while the GCC economies continue to face potential downside risk, the GCC is now far better placed to deal with a period of low oil prices than in the past, due to the size of Sovereign Wealth Funds and the strength of their more diversified economies.  While the market may be slow, large scale development will proceed albeit at a slower pace.

Our latest Insights report outlines the factors driving these challenges, how they impact the GCC real estate capital market and its players, and opportunities for GCC developers to respond proactively to these challenges and stay ahead of the market.
