PE/VC Investments reach a landmark high – 2019

The first half of 2019 saw an increase in the PE/VC investments by $23 billion which is 17% higher than the previous year. The main contributors are the infrastructure and the real-estate sectors with 23% higher investments compared to the entire 2018.

The first and the second half of 2018 had 30% and 19% investments respectively, for which this year, the real estate and the infrastructure sectors alone account for 48% of all PE/VC investments.

With deals worth $803 million in August, the infrastructure saw the highest investments followed by the real-estate sector at $76 million.

This is due to the global investors finding the infrastructure sector favourable and the Real-estate Investment Trusts (REIT) paving way for such interests.

It’s predicted that by the end of 2019, the total Indian PE/VC investment is to be in the range of $48- $50 billion. And this inflow of investments is bound to have a positive affect while buying assets or investing in the commercial real estate.
