Institutional investors set property allocation milestone: survey


Global institutional investors in 2017 targeted real estate for more than 10 percent of their portfolio for the first time in a major milestone but confidence in the asset is waning and will likely continue in the short term, a survey showed on Thursday.

Surpassing 10 percent is a seminal moment for the asset class even though real estate’s average return has decelerated over the past year, according to the fifth annual Institutional Real Estate Allocations Monitor.

The milestone is an important endorsement of real estate as an asset class, said Doug Weill, a managing partner at advisory firm Hodes Weill & Associates, which conducted the survey with Cornell University’s Baker Program in Real Estate.
