Real estate debt: a blossoming American tradition

Investment opportunities for the sector in the US appear to remain strong.

Real estate debt fundraising by region – where a firm plans to deploy capital rather than where the vehicle’s investors are – has fluctuated over the past four years, but one constant has been the rise of North America, according to PDI data.

The region accounted for slightly more than one-in-five dollars raised in real estate in 2014. By 2017, that figure had risen to nearly one-in-two dollars and represented a plurality of the total capital raised in the sector. Fundraising across other regions has fluctuated, with each geographic area posting a strong year followed by a muted year the next.
