Friday’s question:

Pension-fund investment in real estate in Canada is very low and is less than 5% of total pension fund assets of all funds.


Although Pension Funds are allowed to invest up to 25% of their total assets in real estate, very few invest in real estate at all and few invest up to the maximum.  Total real estate investment by Canadian Pension Funds is estimated to be 3% of the total assets.

And that’s it.  But you can learn much more about real-estate development from Herb Auerbach and Michael Mortensen at Real Estate Development from the Inside Out on Mondays from Feb 16 to Mar 19.  More here from the SFU City Program.
