Institutional Investors Raise Their Targets for Real Estate Allocations
A new report put together by Cornell University’s Baker Program in Real Estate and Hodes Weill & Associates, a global real estate advisory firm, found that institutional investors continue to increase their targets for real estate investments, in spite of facing some challenges.
Institutions’ target allocations to real estate averaged 10.1 percent this year, up from 9.9 percent in 2016, the report’s authors found. In 2018, target allocations will likely rise to 10.3 percent, survey respondents indicated. Thirty percent of survey participants increased their target allocations to real estate in 2017, while 18 percent decreased their allocations.
