ALFI survey reveals ongoing increase in Luxembourg-domiciled real estate investment funds

The total number of Luxembourg-domiciled real estate investment funds (REIFs) increased by 10 per cent in 2015, according to the latest ALFI REIF survey produced by EY Luxembourg.

Since  006, the number of direct REIFs – excluding Manager-Regulated AIFs which are included in the latest report for the first time –  have shown a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.45 per cent.
Denise Voss, Chairman of ALFI, says: “We have now been doing the survey on Real Estate Investment Funds since 2006 and over that time the market has changed considerably. Luxembourg’s aim is to create effective solutions for asset managers enabling them to distribute their funds globally and we believe that this latest edition of the survey confirms Luxembourg’s success in achieving that aim.”
Kai Braun, Partner and Alternatives Advisory Leader at EY, says: “The survey results clearly underline the positioning of Luxembourg as domicile of choice for real estate investment funds established with the aim to invest internationally and distribute cross-border. Since the introduction of the AIFMD, the trend of setting up international fund vehicles in the Grand Duchy has even increased with non-EU managers using Luxembourg as a European distribution hub.”
