Total private equity investments from foreign funds in Indian real estate increased 33%, from $1,676 million (around R11,306 crore) in 2014 to $2,220 million (around R14,974 crore) in 2015, according to latest findings of global real estate consultancy Cushman & Wakefield.

Owing to high property prices and high investment potential, Mumbai was accounted for about 35% of the total foreign investments in 2015, followed by Delhi NCR accounting for about 25% of the investments.

Sanjay Dutt, managing director, Cushman & Wakefield India said, “The three large cities; Mumbai, Bengaluru and Delhi-NCR continue to attract the highest investments in India and account for about 75% of these investments.

However, with government initiatives to de-stress these cities, relaxed FDI norms and focus to improve infrastructure across the country, other cities in India are likely to witness rise in PE investments going forward.”

The structured debt deals accounted for almost half (49% in value terms) of the total PE investments in 2015.

The structured deals strategy, though moderated due to increased competition, offers returns in the range of 15% – 17% to its investors.
