Hongkong investor makes maiden Japan residential purchase
Asian investors show continued interest in Japanese real estate. This time, Arch Capital Management from Hongkong has acquired 25 multi-family assets in Tokyo for an undisclosed amount, marking the Hong Kong-based company’s first investments in Japan.
Managing director Terence Lo revealed the news in a LinkedIn post and made some familiar arguments about the attractiveness of Japanese residential real estate: “We are pleased to announce our first investment into Japan with the acquisition of 25 multifamily assets all within Tokyo’s 23 wards. The assets are running at near full occupancy and are all well-located within popular wards that are within a short walk from the nearest train station. We like the strong fundamentals and defensive nature of the Japan residential market and look forward to expanding the ARCH footprint to other key cities within Japan and into other asset classes.”
