Overall returns for Q4 2017 in INREV's regular index of the performance of 325 real estate funds, were 2.75%, delivering a 12-month rolling return of 9.55%

There were positive performances across all sectors, led by industrials and logistics which posted returns of 4.61%, followed by residential at 4.42%; and retail – up from 0.69% over Q3 to 1.68% in Q4

Finnish single-sector funds delivered a return of 5.57%, which is more than double the return of 2.41% in Q3.

Dutch funds were not far behind with a return of 4.14% – an increase from the 3.38% delivered in the previous quarter.

Regionally, only Central and Eastern European funds saw a drop in performance, with total returns falling by 0.06% – down from the positive 1.15% in Q3.

Henri Vuong, INREV Director of Research and Market Information, said: “These results confirm that the non-listed real estate sector ended 2017 on a high note. The positive returns in Q4 reveal some interesting, possibly counter-intuitive, insights for the retail sector – despite the wider turbulence of retailer failures. Real estate investors will no doubt be watching the sector closely.”
