Private real estate up by over 10% in 2011 according to the Partners Group Thomson Reuters Private Real Estate Index
The latest results of the Partners Group Thomson Reuters Private Real Estate Index are now available. Private real estate investments have continued their strong rebound, generating 10.4% during 2011 despite a challenging economic environment in the second half. The index is based on cash flow data contributed from over 300 funds around the globe collected primarily through direct surveys, which makes it one of the largest databases for value-added and opportunistic investments.
Michael Studer, Partner and Head Portfolio & Risk Management at Partners Group, comments "We are excited about the further increased interest in our joint index from investors, consultants and private real estate firms. With the 300 contributing funds targeting investments in Europe, Asia and the U.S., the index allows its users to make a judgment of the performance of private real estate investments on a global scale. We are convinced that being able to show the benefits of the asset class beyond anecdotal evidence will allow investors to make more informed decisions."
