Gusts of change propel real estate funds

The U.S. real estate market has long been one of the strongest in the world. A wide variety of attractive opportunities are available and everyone seems to want a piece. 

But that’s not the whole story. Numerous forces are causing investors to look to new frontiers and owners to change how they operate and deploy capital, including record levels of dry powder, high competition for the best assets, low availability of properties with appropriate risk-adjusted returns, shifts in foreign investment, and the new environment brought about by tax reform. 

On January 11, 2018, KPMG LLP and Shelter Rock Capital Advisors brought together distinguished limited partners, general partners and industry specialists to examine recent trends in U.S. real estate and their ramifications on the business strategies of fund managers, institutional investors, real estate developers and service organizations. In this paper, we share insights from the “Real Estate Fund Trends” event to help the real estate fund industry understand evolving challenges and take advantage of emerging opportunities in the coming year.
