In Q4 2017 indirect real estate vehicles accounted for net capital inflows of €7.1bn up 1% yoy, making it the 2nd best quarter ever behind Q2 2015. FY 2017 came in at €21.8bn increasing by 8% yoy and reaching yet another record. Rising long term interest rates beg the question, whether we have reached the peak of the investment cycle.

Listed Real Estate inflows came in at € 0.6bn in Q4. This brings FY 2017 to €2.4bn representing a slight increase of 4% yoy. Nonetheless, Q4 inflows almost entirely consisted of one deal worth €0.5bn. With the first notable IPO in quite some time announced and alstria having raised €0.2bn already, 2018 seems off to a good start. Rising long term interest rate might be a drag on the market.

Institutional Open-end Funds increased by 28% yoy to 12.5bn for FY 2017 reaching a new record high and surpassing the €10bn markt for the first time.
