Knight Frank India, one of the leading International Property Consultants yesterday launched the third edition of their Capital Markets report. Titled ‘Realty Asset Monetisation 2018 – An Overview’ the report deciphers the emerging trends in monetisation of real estate assets.
Key findings of the report:

- 10,362 crores investment in Retail since 2011
- Warehousing has seen an investment of Rs. 28,136 crores since 2014 of the total Rs. 28,822 crores since 2011
Shishir Baijal, Chairman & Managing Director, Knight Frank India, said “The real estate industry has been through a churn over the past few years due to a slew of structural reforms like demonetisation, GST and RERA. This led to a reduction in investment risk perception coupled with availability of matured assets resulting in a record Rs. 57,300 crores worth of PE investments being witnessed in 2017 alone. The investments which include platform deals and commitments have grown at a CAGR of 36% from 2014 to 2017. The exuberance continues in the current year with Rs. 33,700 crores already being invested in the first half of 2018. While office market has continued to remain strong, a closer look indicates that the once overlooked segments of retail and warehouse have seen a renewed interest from global institutional investors.”
