Institutional Real Estate Investment Practices: Swedish and United States Experiences
AbstractIn recent years, institutional real estate investment activity has experienced major changes in many countries throughout the world. In Sweden, large-scale investment projects have increasingly been dominated by several major financial institutions. As in other places, real estate investment analysis in Sweden has undergone considerable change in terms of rigor, focus, and perspective. This study is the first effort ever to systematically assess the current situation in the market for commercial real estate in Sweden. The study presents the results of a comprehensive 1988 survey of over 200 commercial real estate investment participants in Sweden including insurance companies, pension funds, construction firms, property management firms, and investment companies. The survey results are compared with results reported in the United States and elsewhere within the corporate and real estate capital budgeting literatures. The results reported here can thus be compared cross-sectionally as well as over time across numerous dimensions.
