Real estate fundraising limping along: Q2/17 better than Q1, but still behind 2016

While the first quarter was the slowest first three months since at least first quarter 2013, the most recent quarter is very similar to second quarter 2016. Still off a bit, but not by all that much.

A total of 36 private-equity real estate funds recorded final closings during second quarter 2017, raising an aggregate total of $30.1 billion, according to IREI’s FundTracker database. This represents about $3.4 billion less than capital raised in second quarter 2016, and $2.5 billion less than 2015.
