Trends for 2020
With the year drawing to a close, PGIM Real Estate turns its attention to the outlook, and identifies the major occupier and investment trends expected to influence market conditions and investment performance in 2020 and beyond.
Global Outlook: Striking the Right Balance
The prospect of a downturn almost appears to have been factored in as an inevitability due to the length of the current real estate cycle, and sentiment is under pressure from weaker news on global economic growth. Yet, while real estate pricing looks elevated, it continues to be supported by low interest rates – and there are still reasons to be optimistic about the outlook for income growth, not least because supply remains contained.
U.S. Real Estate Impact Investing
Impact investing is a rapidly growing sector in which many institutional investors are increasingly deploying capital. Despite the term ‘impact investing’ being a decade old, the sector is still in its infancy. Progress toward maturation has been made, but the industry is still refining definitions and benchmarks.
