Over 80% of real estate fund managers raised capital in 2016

by Andrea Waitrovich

More than 80 percent of fund managers raised capital for deployment through private real estate vehicles in 2016, with investors committing a total of $128.4 billion — a 4.8 percent decrease on the previous year, according to the Capital Raising Survey 2017 published by INREV, ANREV and NCREIF.

The survey states there is a continuing interest in the asset class from institutional investors across Europe and beyond. This is reflected by the more than $630 billion that has been invested in nonlisted real estate since 2012.

Almost half of the total capital raised (46.5 percent or $59.6 billion) was for vehicles with a European strategy. By contrast, 26 percent of total capital ($33.3 billion) was raised for North America–focused vehicles and 17.8 percent ($22.9 billion) was raised for vehicles with an Asia Pacific strategy, a significant increase from 2015’s $18.4 billion.
