Real estate debt funds still a favoured source of capital

The 2018 INREV Debt Funds Universe report, reveals the continuing strength of real estate debt funds.  The full Universe of 67 vehicles – eight more than last year – recorded a total target gross asset value of €33.0 billion – up from €30.2 billion in 2017. The Universe results reflect investors’ stated appetite for debt funds as highlighted in INREV’s Investment Intentions Survey 2018, which showed that 23.6% of investors planned to increase their allocations to debt funds. Though the increase in the number of debt funds in the Universe is relatively low at 11%, this is likely to increase. The Investment Intentions Survey suggests that interest is likely to come from US investors hunting for opportunities to gain greater exposure to European non-listed real estate.
