The full report

Australia Retail Investment Outlook 2016

Key Findings:

  • Economic growth to maintain positive, but sub-trend MAT growth.
  • Broader based recovery in discretionary expenditure supported by improving service sector.
  • Inner city retail centres to benefit from ongoing catchment population growth together with limited competition from new market entrants.
  • Retail investment volume to be maintained, but liquidity will shift between centre categories.
  • Australian retail property remains an attractive investment, with modest yield compression likely across the main categories.


Speakers from Woolworths, Mirvac and Commonwealth Bank joined Cushman & Wakefield on Wednesday, 2 March 2016 for the launch of our Australia Retail Investment Outlook for 2016.
