Pension funds and insurance companies account for almost 80% of the real estate investment market according to the Investor Universe Comparison Study 2019.
This study completes the Investor Universe series, comparing the findings of the seven country studies published by INREV in 2019. 

Key highlights include:

  • In terms of risk strategies core remains the preferred style and accounts for 84.9% of the capital allocated to real estate.
