Institutional Investors Plan to Up Their Allocations to Real Estate in 2019
A new report found global institutional investors will target real estate allocations of 10.6 percent on average in 2019.
Global institutional investors’ average weighted target allocation to real estate is expected to tick up in 2019 to 10.6 percent from 10.4 percent in 2018, according to results of a survey administered by Cornell University’s Baker Program in Real Estate and Hodes Weill & Associates, a real estate advisory firm. Last year, this figure was 10.1 percent. The survey included responses from 208 institutional investors, representing 29 countries and about $11 trillion in total assets.
“Real estate continues to gain favor,” says Doug Weill, managing partner of Hodes Weill.
