Real estate investment managers experience mixed recovery from COVID-19

21 October, 2021: The 2021 Global Management Survey, published by NAREIM, INREV and Ferguson Partners, paints a varied picture of real estate investment managers’ recovery from COVID-19.  In terms of 2020 financial performance, 38% of respondents recorded a 10% increase in EBITDA, while 32% reported a 10% drop.

The median firm in the survey recorded net AUM growth of 6%.  While still positive, this reflects the first year of slowing growth since 2016. The survey reports 29% of respondents recording a year-on-year fall in AUM – up from 21% in 2019.
