Piyush Gupta, Managing Director, Capital Markets and Investment Services, Colliers India was quoted as saying, “Domestic capital is seen to flow across asset acquisitions, with credit in multiple asset classes with varied pooled structures,”
The sentiment of global investment firms to invest in India remains strong in spite of global slowdown trends, he said, adding that the current state of economics, with respect to inflation and interest rates, is not perceived to have a long-term impact.
Domestic investors have become more active in the market, with their investment inflows accounting for 18 per cent share during January-September 2022 compared to 14 per cent share during the same period last year.
However, global investors continue to dominate funding activity with higher participation in entity-led deals.
“With global investors partnering with local developers, there is ample dry powder to be invested in the Indian real estate market, especially in the office, and the industrial sectors,” said Vimal Nadar, Senior Director and Head of Research, Colliers India.
Over the next few quarters, he said there might be some slowdown in deployment of funds due to the recession.
However, Nadar said the Indian market is relatively well-insulated and investors continue to view it favourably.
