Ryan Isip, JLL Philippines’ Head of Capital Markets.

“The pandemic has made way for new real estate dynamics and more sophisticated investors, and so JLL will continue to leverage on our industry expertise and property technology (proptech) to be able to continue providing the most innovative client-centric solutions,” he continues.

“The Asia Pacific hotel industry has faced unprecedented challenges in 2020 yet remains firmly on the radars of the world’s most astute and sophisticated investors. Given the longer-term horizons of hotel investors, we’ve stayed close with our client base throughout 2020 and see relationships solidifying further in 2021 as activity re- emerges,” says Mike Batchelor, CEO, Asia Pacific, JLL Hotels & Hospitality Group.
