SINGAPORE -- Months of violent protests in Hong Kong have sent the value of commercial property investments spiraling.

Total investment in properties valued at over $100 million Hong Kong dollars ($13 million) fell 65% on year to HK$6 billion in the July-September quarter. This is about 25% of the HK$25.7 billion quarterly investment average over the last five years, according to data supplied by real estate services company Cushman & Wakefield.
