Proven private equity real estate investing strategies

The subprime fallout and credit crisis have triggered a major transition in U.S. real estate. With tightening lending and underwriting standards, speculative investments and construction projects are likely to limited, resulting in constrained supply and healthier fundamentals over the long term. Looking forward, market participants anticipate that the coming years will be fraught with challenges as well as opportunities.

Active Private Equity Real Estate Strategy is a collection of abridged market analyses, forecasts, and strategy papers from the ING Clarion Partners' Research & Investment Strategy (RIS) group. Divided into two comprehensive parts, this practical guide provides you with an informative overview of real estate markets, forecasts, and recent trends in part one, and presents specific active strategies in private equity real estate investing in part two.

  • Includes a simulation of the economy in recession and the expected effects on the commercial real estate industry
  • Offers examples of portfolio analysis and recommendations using ING Clarion's forecasts and Modern Portfolio Theory
  • Focuses on multifamily, hotel, land, and industrial investments
  • Demonstrates the use of the various tools available to the private equity real estate investor

Written with both the individual and institutional real estate investor in mind, this book offers specific private equity strategies for investing in real estate during volatile times.
