Colliers Global Investor Outlook 2016 points to real estate as the safest place for your cash in 2016, as rates hikes, crashing oil prices and China’s slowdown all have equities looking ready to tank—especially the bond markets.

Colliers expects global transactions to be back to pre-crisis levels in 2016, beyond their 2014 levels.
