Brokerage and Property Management in Asia Today

By: Gregory Smyth

Buying or selling a commercial property or business is extremely vital in anyone's life, both personally and financially. Reliability and confidence in people who help to achieve your deal is really important and you cannot realize your deal unless you communicate with people who possess the necessary understanding about your business and your objectives.

You have to access the services of those who are focused in these specialist fields and those who have the knowledge about the different tasks involved through years and years of experience. Such experienced hands would have manufactured and perfected systems and policies proven to attain maximum output for their clients.

Capital investments are happening globally, however trading is local. Compared to the markets in the US and Europe, Asian markets have got a pronounced heterogeneous nature, with different restrictions, market structures, and taxes varying from country to country. The heterogeneous and distributed behavior of the Asian markets makes it tough for the newcomers to acclimatize, but some mouth watering opportunities are awaiting the brokers to recognize their abilities and services keeping in mind the local market knowledge and experience.

Traditionally, all the brokerage services were looked after in silos, with the buy-side communicating with each group separately. Nowadays there has been a surging demand for an integrated service model, with unified contact that will result in recognizing and coordinating the continuous delivery of services to clients. An efficient group of professionals has got the required expertise and engages with clients to model investment policies for new markets, optimized solutions, and coordinate implementation teams. They reorganize products and services, including research, prime brokerage, financing, stock lending, and trading, depending upon the client needs. This provides the buy-side with the chance to competently improve a broker's infrastructure and experience.

The most notable development in global trading is the increasing impact of direct market access (DMA) and algorithmic trading. However the market for electronic trading has not flourished as much in Asia as in the US, but no doubt it is getting heated up. Now there are in excess of 15 algorithmic providers and the prospects are for nail-biting competition in this area among brokers in the years to come.

When you become the owner of a property the feelings of excitement, pleasure and pride are sure to grip you, no matter whether you have bought a property for the first time, your next home or an investment property. Your selection of properties depends on a lot of factors like what you want, what you can manage and precisely what's in offer at the moment you are set to buy. If you consider all these the property you end up buying will be very similar to the one you had in mind when you began, or at least as close as possible.

Management of residential properties includes providing authoritative back up for multi-owned condominium estates, private villa management, buying and selling clients assets, managing body corporate structures, trust account management, gardening and property maintenance as well as owner representation for repairs and maintenance. Property management also provides Sales and Rental (both Holiday letting and Long term) solutions. The management consultants must understand the financial investment that you have made and make all efforts to ensure that your asset is cared and maintained to guarantee your return on investment: whether it is a rental property, holiday home or commercial property. They must deliver the most effective and respected service providers when it comes to maintaining your property.
