PREA | IPD US Property Fund Index

The PREA | IPD U.S. Property Fund Index allows PREA members access to a large array of data allowing for detailed analysis of the performance of open-end property funds and their underlying investments. While headline numbers are publicly released each quarter, PREA members have the ability to drill-down beneath these headline numbers and look through the returns from the overall fund level down to the performance of the direct unleveraged real estate held by the funds.  The effects on returns of various aspects of fund structure are broken out so far as to provide a complete picture of the sources of fund returns. Please forward any comments or question to Greg MacKinnon
