Private Equity (PE) flow into real estate is up 15 per cent to $2.6 billion during the first quarter (Q1) of calendar 2018, eclipsing the inflows in the first quarter of the last 11 years. “The residential sector gained most of the inflows, as investors look to gain from government incentives in affordable housing,” said Anshul Jain, Country Head and Managing Director India, Cushman & Wakefield. “The strong inflow level is testimony to the attractiveness of the Indian real estate market for institutional investors. Affordable housing projects continue to see interest from institutional investors, driven by strong end-user demand and government incentives for both developers and homebuyers,” he added. Cushman & Wakefield foresee inflows into this segment to be on the rise over the next few years.
