Arshiya Khullar is a senior Asia reporter for PERE. Based in Hong Kong, Arshiya covers news and trends in the private real estate markets across Asia-Pacific. In 2016, Arshiya was awarded the prestigious State Street Institutional Press Award for the best newcomer financial journalist in the region for an investigative story on how Anbang Insurance's failed pursuit of Starwood Hotels & Resorts worsened the reputation of the whole Chinese investor community in the global marketplace. In the past, Arshiya's bylines have also appeared on CNN.com, Quartz, Eurogamer, Lloyd's List and StartupsHK.
