TOP 10 Direct Sovereign Wealth Fund Real Estate Deals of 2014

9 out of the top 10 sovereign wealth funds ranked by assets under management have an allocation to institutional real estate. Increasingly, cash-rich sovereign wealth funds and large pensions such as CPPIB are vying for institutional real estate, creating competition for life insurance companies, developers, real estate managers and real estate investment trusts. For example, the Qatar Investment Authority (QIA) and real estate manager Brookfield embarked on aggressive attempts to acquire Songbird Estates. The Songbird Estates’ board rejected the December 4th joint bid. High-quality real estate provides stability and diversification for these intergenerational institutional investors.
