Institutional investors switch focus to entity-level exposure
Institutional investors, especially private equity (PE) firms, are gradually moving towards entity-level investments from project-level exposure. The PE funds pumped in up to $3.3 billion into the Indian real estate through entity-level investments between 2017 and 2018, showed the data obtained from ANAROCK Property Consultants.
This is three times the amount — $1.1 billion — invested by them between 2015 and 2016. The share of PE funds’ entity-level investments into Indian realty rose from 22% in 2015 -16 to over 39% in 2017-18.
