INREV to launch internal rate of return performance measurement index

11 April 2018, Dublin – INREV is to introduce a new Internal Rate of return (IRR) Index that will enable investors in European non-listed real estate to better compare their real estate investments with those they have in other asset classes. It is a significant development that will help to align the real estate investment industry more closely with other asset classes, such as private equity. The index will measure performance based on cash-on-cash returns as opposed to the value-to-value...

Investors set to increase allocations to real estate in 2018

16 January 2018, London – Fifty six percent of global investors plan to increase their exposure to real estate over the next 24 months, targeting an average 10.2% of total capital allocation. This would amount to a minimum commitment of just over €51 billion this year. Data from the global Investment Intentions Survey 2018, published today by INREV, ANREV and PREA, suggest continued positive sentiment toward real estate in general, and non-listed real estate in particular. The survey reinforces a continuing favourable upward trend. Regionally, investors from Europe are expected to make the most significant allocations to real estate, accounting for 57.7% of total investment capital in 2018. North American investors will likely commit 25.2%, while those from Asia Pacific are forecasting 17.1%. Europe is also the regional destination of choice likely to attract an anticipated 41.2% of allocated capital, followed by the Americas (35.2%) and Asia Pacific (17.4%). However, given that more than half of this allocation will come from Europe the region could see a net outflow, while the Americas could see a net inflow, of capital.
