Private Equity Real Estate magazine's ranking of the world's largest private equity real estate firms.
Released in May 2008, Private Equity Real Estate magazine (PERE) presents the first PERE 30, a ranking of the largest private equity real estate firms in the world. It is the only ranking of private equity real estate firms by size using an apples-to-apples methodology.
Working on background with many of the firms themselves as well as with market sources and industry data services, PERE determines the rankings based on the amount of private equity direct-investment capital raised by each firm over the past five years.
A detailed ranking, along with profiles of each PERE 30 firm and our methodology, is available in the May 2008 issue of Private Equity Real Estate (click here to learn more).
The 30 firms of the PERE 30 are below, and you may download an executive summary of the 2008 rankings here.
Together, PERE 30 firms have raised an aggregate of $190 billion in dedicated, direct-investment private equity real estate programs over a roughly five-year period, from January 1, 2003 until press time in mid April, 2008.
