MSCI Investment Insights Report 2021
We surveyed 200 institutional investors globally with assets of around $18 trillion to better understand their views on the most important investment issues. What are the most important trends for the next three to five years? What is the lasting impact of COVID-19? And what is their latest thinking on factor investing, risk management, and diversity?
Transforming real estate data into actionable insight
“Good enough” is no longer good enough when it comes to real estate investing.
Our expert consultants and researchers know that any lack of transparency or comparability with other asset classes can muddy an investor's assessment of risk and performance and can make governance and reporting more challenging.
We also know that simply more data, without the capability to connect the dots, is not enough.
That is why as strategies become more sophisticated and investors demand more insight into risk and performance drivers and drag, we focus on delivering client value far beyond the reporting cycle.

Real Estate research commonly focuses on monitoring market trends in rents, yields and prices. Although useful for broad market context, investors may also seek to understand what these high-level trends mean for investment performance at the asset level and how they aggregate across portfolios. MSCI Real Estate research aims to bridge this gap by leveraging our unique dataset and the analytical capabilities of MSCI Global Intel and Enterprise Analytics, which provide insight into market and portfolio analytics.
Combining this differentiated content and research can help investors across the enterprise – from strategy formation and portfolio management to asset underwriting and risk – obtain actionable investment insights based on broad and deep information.
Working in the context of MSCI’s broader, multi-asset class research team, we can also help clients across the investment process – from high-level asset allocation through real estate portfolio management down to individual asset appraisal – with research insights relevant to their decision making.
Our research includes:
- A range of short papers applying our data and analytics to important industry issues such as:
- E-commerce and its impact on bricks and mortar retail real estate
- The relative attractiveness of global gateway cities for office investment strategies
- Whether the industrial sector is benefitting from a structural change in demand
- Easy to digest blogs covering topics from asset appraisal through to multi-asset class scenario modelling, in partnership with the wider MSCI Research team.
