Non-listed core real estate funds offer the diversification benefits of real estate as part of a multi-asset portfolio and can provide investors with an accessible and transparent route to gain exposure to the sector. They are a maturing part of the European real estate industry that is now launching its second generation of funds. The first generation of funds faced the extreme challenges of the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) head on; an experience which has resulted in a refined and reconsidered fund product for the new cycle. This paper highlights both the qualitative and quantitative benefits of core real estate funds in Europe and how they can support the investment requirements of investors. The industry offers a wide range of products to match risk/return requirements, but this report focuses on core non-listed real estate funds as a natural entry point for investors that are looking for real estate exposure.
