IN-DEPTH: 2018 Altus Group Real Confidence Executive Survey, natural disasters concerns, tax reform, Trump administration
IREN reported the results of the 2018 Altus Group Real Confidence Executive Survey this week.
The executive survey polled industry leading CRE decision-makers on economic trends, demographics, consumer preferences, and the supply and demand of commercial real estate assets. Executives were also asked to allocate a theoretical $1 billion of capital in CRE investments to get the best returns for 2018. The Altus Group Real Confidence Executive Survey index is based on these allocations and represents a total theoretical investment of $52 billion of capital.
Commercial real estate executives showed high concern about natural disasters. Forty-six percent of respondents believe that natural disasters are a larger economic concern than geopolitical conflicts and terrorism.
