Five factors driving the hospitality sector
The robust growth in the hospitality sector has sparked interest from investors, both domestic and international. “It’s attracting capital from sources who may have shied away from the asset class in the past,” says John McCourt, partner and real estate hospitality lead at RSM. “Even [from] as far [away] as China where they’ve eased restrictions on outward investing. And from what we’re seeing from our own client base, there are several hospitality transactions happening at the moment.”
