higher average salary for those that state English is their first language

Will Glover Managing Director - APAC

When compared with global real estate salaries, remuneration across the Asia-Pacific has remained flat. You could argue stricter C-19 restrictions in Asian countries has meant recovery has stalled for a longer period than our international counter-parts.

1 in 2 did receive a pay rise in Asia, mainly from promotions and annual pay reviews, particularly if you are located in China. If you achieved a professional qualification in Hong Kong, or received a counter-offer in Singapore, you were more likely to receive the biggest pay rise

Specialists asset classes award the most remuneration, so good news for those that work in Specialist Residential, Self-Storage, and Data Centers.

This year we have compared average salaries according to respondents’ first language – it makes for an interesting picture. It is clear there is a premium placed for speaking English, and this is most apparent for Hong Kong where average pay is 83% higher than if Mandarin or Cantonese is your first language.

APAC'S real estate gender pay gap is at 31.8%, down from 36% last year. Singapore leads the way with a gender pay gap of 21.2%. Hong Kong stands at 40% and China at 50.5%.

In all Asian regions, we see a salary premium placed for those that speak English as a first foreign language, and this is highly evident for Hong Kong SAR, China and other developing countries such as Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia and Myanmar, where English speaking professionals in Real Estate receive a significantly higher amount than native speakers.
