Preqin Quarterly Update: Real Estate, Q1 2015 Apr 2015
Private real estate fundraising in Q1 2015 was strong, with 24 private real estate funds reaching a final close, raising an aggregate $29bn in institutional commitments, making it the most successful quarter since Q4 2013 in terms of capital raised. A large portion of this capital was accounted for by Blackstone Real Estate Partners VIII, which at $14.5bn, becomes the largest private real estate fund ever raised. Recent performance of real estate funds has been strong, with average positive changes in NAV for closed-end private real estate funds for 18consecutive quarters, and encouraging IRRs for funds of recent vintage years. As a result institutional appetite for real estate is positive and many investors are planning sizeable commitments to real estate in the coming year.

Preqin Quarterly Update: Hedge Funds, Q1 2015 Apr 2015
Single-manager hedge funds failed to match the same double-digit annualized returns in 2014 that were seen in the two years prior and industry observers are keen to see hedge funds fare better this year. As it stands, this appears achievable, with the Preqin All-Strategies Hedge Fund benchmark posting 2.88% over Q1 2015, its best quarterly figure since Q4 2013.
