Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Thursday, 11 September 2008

To mark the establishing of Hong Kong as its Asia International Property operations headquarters, Knight Frank will be hosting an exhibition in Hong Kong on 20 and 21 September 2008. A selection of the most exclusive homes in South East Asia, Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong will be presented at the exhibition held at Watermark, Central Pier.

Due to its world-class infrastructure, free economy and cosmopolitan work-force, Hong Kong is poised as a gateway for international buyers and investors. Knight Frank is committed to the development and growth of the region and we are proud that International Property has joined our extensive range of property advisory services, from building consultancy and valuation to sales and leasing, to make Hong Kong its home base for the region, Mr. Colin Fitzgerald, Managing Director of Knight Frank Asia Pacific, said.

With a network of nearly 200 worldwide offices and century-old heritage in the international property industry, Knight Frank has long been providing advisory services to some of the most influential clients around the world. The firm offers a wealth of diverse properties from 15th century castles to Park Avenue penthouses to some of Asias finest addresses.

The Asia exhibition is designed to highlight selected properties from the firm's luxury offerings across the region. For visitors seeking investment opportunities with guaranteed returns or homes that offer the pinnacle of luxury, the exhibition provides an opportunity to discover the benefits of establishing a trusted partner in any overseas property transaction.

With over 36 years of experience in the region, Knight Frank's international property representatives are knowledgeable in the local legal ownership structures, capital access and market trends of each Asia Pacific country.

Mr. Amous Lee, Director of the International Property Investment department at Knight Frank, said, There are strong reasons for investors to invest in overseas property. However, due to lack of knowledge and information on purchasing overseas, many buyers and investors are putting plans on hold. Concerned that the local market has peaked and will see pressure during the second half of 2008, investors are interested in diversifying their investment portfolios and are beginning to look overseas to obtain a better return on investment in the medium to long term. Lifestyle seekers are looking for holiday and retirement homes outside Hong Kong.

The seminar schedule will run as follows:

20 and 21 September

11:30am - Australia 
12:00pm - New Zealand 
3:00pm - Hong Kong
4:30pm - Malaysia
5:00pm - Singapore
