EisnerAmper and Preqin Publish "2019 Private Equity Real Estate Market Outlook"

May 7, 2019


Private real estate experienced another strong year in 2018, with total AUM surpassing $900 billion for the first time; fundraising exceeding $100 billion for the sixth consecutive year; and a record 6,418 PERE deals completed for an aggregate value of $325 billion. However, do high asset valuations, rising interest rates, concentrated capital, the exit environment and more foreshadow a market correction?

To help take a deeper dive on both the qualitative and quantitative factors that are changing the face of private equity real estate, national accounting and business advisory firm, EisnerAmper, and leading source of data, insights and tools for alternative asset professionals, Preqin, joined forces to publish the 2019 Private Equity Real Estate Market Outlook.

This 24-page report focuses on such key topics as:

  • Fundraising
  • Qualified Opportunity Funds
  • Deals in 2018
  • Attracting Capital
  • Private Real Estate Debt
  • Alternative Structures
  • Fund Terms and Fees
  • Outlook for 2019

Breaking out statistics by property type, geography, capital sources and other key categories, this report is sprinkled with insightful commentary from real estate industry leaders.

“This report provides great insight for both GPs and LPs regarding private equity real estate. From examining how funds attract capital, fund terms and fees in 2018 to what’s in store for 2019, we take a serious, comprehensive look at the PERE landscape,” said Lisa Knee, National Leader of EisnerAmper’s Real Estate Private Equity Group. “It also provides a valuable blueprint as to fund structure, investor profiles and the rapidly burgeoning area of QOFs—not to mention REITs and other blocking strategies.”

“The past few years have been a boom period for the PERE industry,” added Tom Carr, Head of Real Estate at Preqin. “And we’ve seen the market diversify with new strategies and sectors coming to the fore. At the same time, though, the pressures facing the industry through capital concentration and competition for deals are challenging managers to innovate and find new ways to generate returns for their investors. This is making for an ever-more specialist and hard-to-navigate market for investors.”
