Pension funds are making more real estate investments

Employee pension funds are an important part of many California residents' retirement plans. The money that is contributed to a pension fund is invested on an employee's behalf with the goal of returning profits for retirement. In the past few years, pension funds have been investing more money in commercial real estate than they used to.

Commercial real estate investments and technology

Real estate sponsors in the commercial real estate investment industry have often had to rely on personal relationships in order to gather investors. California residents who are interested in commercial real estate trends should know that technology is becoming a significant factor in how investment opportunities can now be marketed.

Commercial real estate lending shifts to foreign banks

California developers may find smaller banks shying away from offering commercial real estate loans. Federal regulation is increasing, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and Office of the Comptroller of the Currency has stepped up pressure on banks to offer stronger loan terms. This has resulted in larger banks backing off as well.

Trends that affect commercial real estate

California-based investors in commercial real estate might want to take a look at several different trends that might help them gauge what the performance of their sector will be like in the months ahead. One of those trends is economic and political uncertainty worldwide. While the International Monetary Fund expects emerging markets to result in growth globally, Brexit in the United Kingdom has caused a lack of certainty that may be good for commercial real estate markets in the United States.
