Demand for logistics assets has been growing over the past few months, says Ambarchi, boosted by the fact that occupancy rates for Grade A warehouse assets in Singapore has been close to 100% since early 2020.

“These assets generate superior defensive cash flows in a time of uncertainty and their appeal is further enhanced by the growing adoption of e-commerce and companies,” he says, and expects demand and rents of logistics assets to continue to climb over the foreseeable future.
