Colliers International Gains Top Accolade in REIW Asia Awards for Excellence 2013

HONG KONG--(Marketwired - Jul 3, 2013) -  Colliers International has been voted by its clients as the winner of the Best Property Advisory/Consultancy in the 2013 Real Estate Investment World (REIW) Asia Awards for Excellence, the region's most prestigious awards for real estate players. They honour companies that make outstanding contributions to the Asian real estate industry, in terms of their growth, outperformance and adaptability to changing market conditions and client needs.

Thanking the clients for this vote of excellence, Piers Brunner, Chief Executive Officer, Asia, Colliers International, attributed its success to its core values of service and expertise. "These core values underpin the quality of the services we provide. Our specialists seek to understand our clients' business needs and come up with innovative and integrated solutions that exceed their expectations as we help them to grow their businesses."

Brunner added that the company has recently repositioned the investment services group in Asia with key executive appointments. The newly restructured Asia Capital Market and Investment Services Division is now led by industry veteran Terence Tang. "There has been a significant growth of institutional capital in Asia and we are also seeing more Asian private wealth capital looking for investment opportunities. Hence, the investment advisory services need to be regionalised and institutionalised as it is all about serving the interests of the clients. Having an integrated regional structure will help serve our clients even better."

The REIW awards were presented in the presence of more than 250 leading industry personalities at the recent REIW Asia Industry Gala Dinner held in Singapore. This is the second year they have been presented during the REIW Asia Conference, the region's largest industry convention, which showcases the strategies, personalities and companies in real estate investment management, development and finance.
