Sovereign wealth funds could invest up to $100bn (£50bn) a year in property over the coming years, says German bank Eurohypo.

In its report, Sovereign Wealth Funds: is Property the Next Target?, published today, Eurohypo said the property sector was becoming more attractive because it matched the funds’ key demands, such as: long-term cash flows, which replace original sources of the funds as they expire; protection against inflation; low-price volatility; higher returns if aggressively managed; and almost no politically sensitive considerations.
