Smooth landing or rough?: It doesn't matter; we're ready

We have just completed our tenth annual editorial advisory board meeting, held in Stresa, Italy, which was attended by more than 20 LPs and other capital-sourcing firms, including consultants and fund-of-fund investors, and which included some incredibly frank and open dialogue with nearly 20 fund managers.


Emission tests: Can Chinese outbound capital keep clear of the pollution from short-term domestic economic uncertainty?

Over recent years, Chinese capital has been the engine of European real estate investment, but are we now at a turning point in the investment cycle? With all of the recent press speculation about the long-term health of the Chinese economy, the spotlight will inevitably turn to whether Chinese capital, which for the past five years or so has been the engine of the investment market, is starting to dry up and whether the fuel for this engine can be as readily available as it has in the past.

The first quarter of 2015 saw the highest fundraising volume since Q3 2008. The quarterly volume of €27.8 billion ranked as the highest Q1 total since FundTracker began collecting data in 2007.


Investors welcome positive rental growth outlook

At the annual conference of EPRA, the European Public Real Estate Association, held in Berlin on 9 September, Tim Leckie, real estate analyst at J.P. Morgan Chase & Co, told delegates that investors in European listed property companies will benefit from around two years of low interest rates, broadening rental growth and rising asset values.


Connecting the dots: How China's economic malaise could affect US real estate markets

It is hard to believe that that was only a year ago, particularly because China has recently become what many investors fear most from an economic superpower — unpredictable. In the past few months, the country’s image of stability has fractured because of a combination of financial missteps and economic underperformance. Meanwhile, US real estate investors have been watching things unfold safely outside the impact zone of this economic malaise, treating it primarily as a peripheral issue. In all likelihood, that is the right approach — but what if it’s not?


A sheltered spot?

As summer draws to a close and we return to our desks, it is at this point in the year that we remark on what has and what hasn’t changed, realise just how much we still have to complete and brace ourselves for the shift in seasons.
