Real Estate Fund Management: Welcome to the Brave New World 

One of the fundamental issues for fund managers today is how they engage with investors. There is significant appetite for fund managers who have a proven track record and who are able to adapt to the new challenges.

As investors reduce the number of fund managers they use, it is likely that only the strong fund managers will survive. The third article of our Real Estate Industry Series explores this issue further.


Following the global financial crisis, not only are investors more demanding, but fund managers have come under pressure from a number of factors:

  • declining levels of fee income
  • reliance on the launch of new funds
  • regulatory pressure.


Fund managers need to adapt in order to retain and attract new investors.
