Private Equity: Investment Opportunities in Real Estate for the Pandemic Affected Economy
FTI Consulting's Jahn Brodwin, Josh Herrenkohl, Cynthia Nelson, Yunsoo Kim, Ashalata Shettigar and Laura Jackson share their outlook and provide guidance to institutional investors and fund managers in a webinar discussion about distressed M&A opportunities, the challenges for private equity investment in real estate and tax provisions that investors should be aware of.
According to a recent survey of real estate fund managers and other institutional investors conducted by FTI Consulting and Real Estate Finance & Investment, investment interest in both traditional and niche asset classes remains high, with nearly half of the respondents expecting there to be the same levels of equity and debt capital available for investments post COVID as there was pre-COVID. Further, assuming that there is a vaccine or cure for COVID by the end of 2020, the majority of respondents said they expect even more transaction volume in 2021 than this year, and more than 85% expect to see more or at least the same level of investment in 2021 versus 2020. So where exactly will those investment opportunities be found?
