Covid-19 presents the real estate debt fund industry with a challenge, but conservative lending practices over the last decade leave it well positioned to cope. The big beasts are getting bigger.

Those market leaders make up the RED 50 – PERE’s annual global private real estate debt fund capital raising ranking – where a new name has emerged at the top of the pile. As the runners and riders swap positions, broader market changes are also coming into focus.

After four consecutive years of increased fundraising peaked at $40 billion in 2017, the downward trend continued last year. Average fund sizes are holding up, however, and there are sizable funds in market. Investment in real estate debt is also expected to benefit as the novel coronavirus and late-cycle considerations prompt a turn to lower-risk strategies.
