Deploying Capital in Real Estate
With favorable market conditions, a record long economic expansion, and more demand from institutions we’re seeing healthy growth in private equity real estate. From core, core-plus, opportunistic, value-added, distressed, and debt—Bloomberg will gather top fund managers to explore what key markets and strategies funds are finding opportunity. While private equity real estate funds remain flush with cash, more intense competition this late in the cycle is proving harder and harder to place capital. Additionally, from the boom in e-commerce to interest rates and asset valuations what factors will fuel further demand or challenge the path of the current market?
