This is the first in a series of academic papers that INREV will publish. Going forward INREV plans to invite the academic community to research the European non-listed real estate market in more detail.
This paper aims to provide a better understanding of the key drivers of European non-listed real estate funds performance, which in turn will aid portfolio managers in making more informed investment decisions. It also seeks to understand the extent to which stock selection and management skills contribute to a fund’s total return, outperformance and risk adjusted performance. This academic paper has been written by Franz Fuerst (University of Cambridge), Wayne Lim (University of Cambridge) and George Matysiak (Master Management Group & Cracow University of Economics).
