Associations: Majority of investors to increase RE allocation

If institutional investors execute their plans, they will add €51bn to the market this year, according to the annual survey from INREV, ANREV and PREA.

Investors continue to be more optimistic about real estate, despite citing currency risks and deployment challenges in the year ahead.

In the Investment Intentions Survey 2018, published Wednesday by three associations – the European Association for Investors in Non-Listed Real Estate Vehicles (INREV), its Asia counterpart ANREV and the Pension Real Estate Association – the 320 institutional investor responses “suggest continued positive sentiment toward real estate in general, and non-listed real estate in particular.”
