PERE: Investor confidence in RE continues to fall
Institutional investors have been feeling less confident about investing in real estate over the past four years, despite continuing to increase their allocations to the asset class, according to the fourth annual “Institutional Real Estate Allocations Monitor” from Cornell University’s Baker Program in Real Estate and Hodes Weill & Associates.
The survey’s Conviction Index asks investors to rate their view of the investment opportunity in real estate from a risk/return perspective on a scale of one to 10, with one being the least favorable and 10 being the most favorable. In 2016, the Conviction Index, standing at 5.4, showed an ongoing downward trend in investor sentiment, continuing a decline from 6.4 to 5.6 between 2013 and 2015.
