"The$19 billion raised is not far off recent quarters, and while fundraising thisyear has not quite reached the levels seen in 2015, there remains a great dealof institutional appetite for real estate," he said in the third-quarterreport, noting that half of the 10 largest real estate funds on the road haveheld interim closes.

Capitalconcentration is also increasing, and North America-focused funds aredominating the market. The 32 vehicles that closed during the third quartermarked the lowest number of closed funds since 2003.

Thereare currently 513 private real estate funds, targeting $182 billion, in themarket. Dry powder held by private equity real estate firmstotaled $230 billion as of October 2016, up from $210 billion at the end of2015.
