Private equity investments into real estate register 26% decline in 9M FY 2024

Private equity investments in real estate registered a decline of approximately 26% in nine months of FY24 as both foreign and domestic investors reported lower activity. Activity from foreign investors remained subdued for most of this period due to global geopolitical uncertainties and a high interest rate environment, finds ANAROCK Capital’s FLUX report for 9M FY24.

Asset Class-wise Funding

The commercial real estate sector has seen an increased share in PE deals in 9M FY24, driven by a single large transaction and reduced activity in residential real estate.

“Domestic Alternate Investment Funds have seen lower activity levels as their favoured asset class – residential real estate debt – witnessed lower demand for high-cost funds. Strong residential pre-sales and an accommodative stance by state-owned banks have led to reduced demand for capital from the more expensive AIFs,” said Shobhit Agarwal, MD and CEO – ANAROCK Capital.

Top 10 PE Deals in 9M FY24

The share of the top 10 deals was 87% of the total value of PE investments in 9M FY24 as compared to 76% in 9M FY23, said the report.

Average Ticket Size

The average ticket size has marginally increased to $95 mn in 9M FY24 from $ 91 mn in 9M FY23. This is largely due to a large deal in which Brookfield India Real Estate Trust REIT and Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund GIC together acquired two commercial assets – one in Mumbai and the other in Gurugram, NCR, from Brookfield Asset Management with an enterprise value of $1.4 bn, the report said.
