A glass half full: Despite myriad challenges, institutional investors adapt amid COVID-19

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the institutional real estate community has taken steps to adapt, which can be seen in the responses to our annual investor survey. They revealed an impact on real estate investment activity in 2020, though lesser than occurred during the global financial crisis, according to 2021 Institutional Investors Real Estate Trends, the 25th annual investor survey jointly conducted by Institutional Real Estate, Inc and Kingsley, a Grace Hill Co.


Smart storage: By adopting tech, self-storage operators can thrive in an increasingly competitive age

New technology is changing established business models within real estate. The shift to more tech-driven structures is being fuelled, in part, by the goal for portfolios to become net-zero carbon.

A global dialogue: Editors share takeaways from 2021’s virtual Editorial Advisory Board meetings

The 2021 editorial board of Institutional Real Estate Europe met virtually 15–18 February; the editorial board of Institutional Real Estate Asia Pacific met virtually 2–5 March; and the editorial board of Institutional Real Estate Americas met virtually 6–9 April.
