Jones Lang LaSalle CEO: No Double-Dip

The CEO of global real estate services firm Jones Lang LaSalle pooh-poohs the notion of another real estate downturn.

“We don’t expect a double dip,” CEO Colin Dyer told reporters in Asia on Friday. “Our sense is that the corporate clients that we deal with are liquid, they have amassed a lot of money, they are looking for ways to invest.”

Jones Lang LaSalle manages about $40 billion of real estate investments for its institutional clients globally. More than two-thirds of the clients are in the U.S. and Europe, while 25 percent are in Asia.
