The attractiveness of 66 countries for institutional real estate investments: A composite index approach
We address the attractiveness of worldwide 66 countries for institutional real estate investments by the construction of a composite index. For the index' composition, we refer to the results of prior research on the parameters determining real estate investment activity on an aggregated country level. Our index reveals a country ranking that correlates reasonably with commercial real estate investments as we prove with back-tests over six years. We increase the transparency of market variables for decision-making in global real estate asset allocation and provide the key determinants that shape national real estate markets. The results highlight the strengths and weaknesses of developed, transition and emerging economies and provide guidelines for political improvements to attract international capital to spur real estate investment activity.
