Retail Investment Review & Outlook 2022

The Retail Investment Review & Outlook report is the real estate industry’s must-have resource for smart decision-making, with analysis of the 2021 retail sector and predictions for 2022.

April 05, 2022

Key report insights include: 

  • Retail investment in New Zealand increased 34% 2021 to $755.3 million
  • Despite the surge in activity, the volume was still the second lowest out of the last eight years
  • Pricing for convenience retail and large format retail tightened significantly so investors have moved into larger assets, with appetite broadening not just by sub-sector but by risk profile as well.
  • After increasing in 2020, vacancy rates were stable across all the sub-sectors in 2021 with the exception of the CBD which continued to rise.
  • We expect the recovery profile for CBD retail to be protracted, with a mix of cyclical and structural drivers.

We’re working with a broader cross section of investors than in previous years, ranging from core funds, listed groups to private investors for an even more diverse range of asset types. The legacy of ownership consolidation in retail is being unwound with new players executing different strategies, a theme which is leading to elevated levels of transaction activity.
