Germany has retained its title as favoured investment location in Europe, according to the latest Investor Intentions survey published by INREV.
Almost 68% of investors polled in the suvey and as much as 92.3% of fund of funds managers opted for allocations to this region.
The Nordic markets ranked second with 60% of investors selecting this as their preferred location, largely driven by their own domestic investments. The UK remains in third position with 32% of investors giving it the thumbs up.
'Set against the story of the wider economy and investment landscape, these results suggest a positive climate for real estate. It seems likely that real estate will continue to edge forward as part of investors’ total multi-asset portfolios,' concluded Matthias Thomas, CEO INREV.
The ninth INREV Investment Intentions Survey provides insight into the expected trends in the non-listed real estate funds industry in 2013. The report is based on data and feedback from 155 respondents made up of 65 investors, 17 fund of funds managers and 73 fund managers.
