A total of $138 billion was returned to investors in private real estate funds in 2013, says a Preqin report. An all-time high, it is more than double the $67 billion distributed to investors the previous year and exceeds the $92 billion in real estate commitments. The higher capital distributions will help bolster the private real estate market because investors are able to reinvest previously unavailable cash. Eighty-two per cent of real estate fund managers in the survey said interest in real estate investment has increased in the past 12 months.
