Investors allocate to private real estate for a myriad of reasons, which means their investment objectives can vary substantially. As such, investors articulate their objectives in various ways such as market-based benchmarks, inflation related targets or perhaps absolute return targets. However, an objective is not a strategy; Investors must make this translation from objective to strategy, through to execution. Market-based benchmarking and associated analytics form a powerful toolbox to understand drivers of risk and returns to evaluate the extent to which a strategy is delivering on the investors’ expectations.
