The APREA-Preqin Quarterly Monitor uses interactive infographics to showcase the performance of closed-end private real estate funds focused on Asia-Pacific (APAC). Benchmark your APAC- or global-focused funds against those of your peers, see how fund performance has evolved over the past decade and analyze fund returns based on different vintage years and strategies. 

Preqin captures performance data from a variety of sources including direct contributions from institutional investors and fund managers, as well as the latest financial reports, public filings and annual reports. The Index is updated as of Q3 2019, and will be refreshed every quarter (October, January, April and July) with a six-month lag to ensure figures are meaningful. Vintage analyses are based on the most up-to-date data collected by Preqin as of March 2020. 


Preqin APAC Private Real Estate Quarterly Index

The Index (as of Q3 2019) captures the average returns earned by investors on their private capital portfolios, based on the actual amount of money invested in Asia-Pacific by private real estate fund managers. The index figures are derived from fund-level performance data provided to Preqin by both fund managers and LPs, and reported to us net of fees and costs.

Preqin indices are dynamic – when a new quarter is calculated, the percentage change over the preceding quarter is recalculated to include all of the additional data we have been able to obtain.

The Index is capital weighted, meaning larger funds have a larger bearing on the overall percentage changes.

Preqin APAC Private Real Estate Quarterly Index

Methodology: % change=

Median Net IRR (%)

Funds that began investing following the Global Financial Crisis (vintages 2009 and onwards) have experienced significantly larger returns (both in terms of net IRRs and net multiples) than those preceding them. Funds of more recent vintages are still relatively early in their fund lives, and so figures for these vintages are subject to change as funds mature. To explore performance data at a fund-level, register for a free demo of Preqin Pro.


The size of each bubble represents the capitalization of funds in this analysis, with the x- and y- axis illustrating return (median net IRR%) and risk (standard deviation of net IRR%) respectively. This chart is made up of funds of all vintages.

APAC-focused managers are finding the largest returns in distressed opportunities – with the strategy also exhibiting a lower risk profile than opportunistic funds (the most capitalized strategy). Meanwhile, debt and fund of funds vehicles have exhibited the lowest variation in returns.
