Real estate projects are strong and moving forward, thanks in part to continued growth of opportunity real estate investment funds. These private equity funds invest in real estate such as office buildings, distressed properties, and other commercial infrastructure. Focusing on the hospitality sector, Urbana Varro continues to show strength in strategy.
An increase in private equity-backed sales and dividend recapitalizations this year means private equity investors are benefitting from the strongest positive cash flow since before the financial crisis. These days, private equity is more challenging to navigate than ever for fund managers and their investors, which is where Urbana Varro excels. The outcome is worth the challenge; the median annual return for private equity portfolios has proven greater than that for fixed income and public equity funds and investments.
