Annual Investor Survey

This past year has presented challenges that could not have been anticipated before we launched the 2020 survey, which began data collection in November 2019. As a matter of reference, last year’s survey revealed that U.S. investors decreased their target allocations to foreign real estate. This continued a recent trend of declining emphasis abroad, reaching a three-year low target percentage in 2020. Domestic investors’ declining emphasis on foreign real estate was countered by an expanded focus on value-added and opportunistic strategies at home, which both increased from 2019.

Now that we’ve gone close to a full year of working within the COVID pandemic environment, how much has this sentiment changed, if at all? Have you shifted to new strategies and allocations, or are you continuing on as previously planned?
