PERE: PROVIDING THE TOOLS TO MEET INCREASED MARKET DEMANDS
During 2011 capital raisings for private equity real estate (PERE) remained nearly unchanged, totaling $44.4bn compared to $45.4bn raised in the previous year, according to London-based alternatives analysts Preqin.
On the plus side, investors have indicated a willingness to stay put, with more than two-thirds currently below expected target real-estate allocations. As the PERE sector begins to improve, fund managers "should brace themselves for an acceleration of deals and financing activity to hit the market over the next several years," says E&Y Global Real Estate Funds Leader Mark Grinis.
To capitalize on the benefits, managers will need to look for new ways to set themselves apart from the pack, while also dealing with rising competition from the likes of real estate investment trusts (REITs), which continue to gain market share in the investment-property space. Providing managers with the ability to substantially improve visibility, using tools ranging from consolidated financial reports and automated record keeping to simulated performance scenarios, is a good place to start.
