With the popularity of the Asia Pacific non-listed real estate market continuing to increase, it is timely to assess how much capital is entering the market and what this figure represents on a global basis.
The Capital Raising Survey was first launched in 2014. This survey gives an insight into capital raising activities within the non-listed real estate industry by region, product type and investment strategy. The non-listed real estate products include separate accounts, joint ventures, club deals, funds of funds and non-listed real estate debt products. The report offers detailed insights into global and regional capital raising figures.
The 2017 survey attracted a record number of participants with 162 fund managers globally completing the questionnaire, a 6% increase compared to 2016 when 153 fund managers responded to the survey. 80.2% of those surveyed raised a combined US$128.4 billion for non-listed real estate throughout 2016. The Asia Pacific region attracted US$22.9 billion of equity, the only region to see an increase of capital raised in comparison to 2015.
