Multi-asset investors: real estate investments to rise to 11%–13%


German multi-asset investors expect to see the percentage of real estate in their assets under management to increase, from the current average of 9.8% to 11–13%. This is the findings of a survey conducted by Catella Research, with responses from over a quarter of the 240 banks, insurance companies, investment/asset managers and funds contacted. The aim was to find out more about their investment behavior, given the ongoing zero-interest environment. The most popular forms of investment are open-ended German real estate investment funds. Direct investments come in second, closely followed by Luxembourg-based open-ended real estate investment funds. Office properties (30% of real estate investments) remain the most attractive, but will see diminished importance, as will the second-largest segment, residential real estate.
