Increasing appetite in the Irish Market for Investment in Alternative Sectors


Future Analytics Consulting Ltd, in conjunction with commercial property specialists CBRE, released a very interesting report this week focusing on the increasing appetite in the Irish market for investment in alternative sectors.



The report was covered in the Irish Times earlier this week and was featured in a radio interview with our partner in CBRE, Marie Hunt (Executive Director and Head of Research), found here: (move dial approximately half way through to get to podcast).



The ‘Alternative Investment in Ireland’ report focuses in particular on three sectors, namely Build to Rent (BTR); Purpose-Built Student Accommodation (PBSA) and Healthcare, and is certain to prove very interesting to investors, funders and developers alike.



CBRE and FAC have conducted detailed research into each of these specific forms of alternative investment, exploring the concepts and considering their relevance and sustainability in an Irish context having regard to demand and supply dynamics in each sector.



Commenting on the launch of the report, FAC Managing Director Dr. William Hynes said “This project has been an exciting showcase of FAC’s capabilities in market intelligence and investment decision-support services. Working with CBRE on this research has offered unique insight into these emerging property sectors. We have been securing development consents for numerous schemes recently which is contributing to a more robust pipeline supply to the market”.
