Mumbai: Private equity investment in the reale state sector has grown 22 per cent during January-September this year to Rs 28,300 crore, from Rs 23,200 crore a year ago, reflecting improved confidence among investors to make larger investments, says a Cushman & Wakefield report.

According to the report, private equity inflow increased to Rs 28,300 crore during the period, out of which nearly Rs 9,200 crore were recorded during the third quarter (July-September) of 2016.

While the number of deals closed during the third quarter moderately declined by 3 per cent quarter-on-quarter (q-o-q) to 32 per cent, the total investments increased by 1.2 per cent, reflecting increased confidence amongst investors to make larger investments.

The average deal size, therefore, increased from Rs 275 crore in Q2 2016 to Rs 287 crore in the third quarter of 2016.

"Owing to the continued interest in pre-leased office assets, the investments in the commercial office assets have already surpassed the total investment received during the calendar year 2015," the report said.

The y-o-y change in investment in office assets has recorded an increase by over 50 per cent as registered in the third quarter.

"Moreover with a few large deals for office portfolios in active discussion and deal closure stages, the fourth quarter (October-December 2016) is expected to record the highest annual investments made in the asset class," it said.

Residential assets witnessed over 73 per cent or Rs 6,675 crore of the total investment during July-Spetember 2016.

"Despite the largest share in total volumes, investments saw a moderate 3 per cent decline when compared to that received in the same period in 2015," it said.

Within residential investments, Mumbai was the most preferred location that accounted for 63 per cent of the share, followed by Delhi-NCR and Bengaluru, accounting for 18 per cent and 15 per cent of the share, respectively.
