The results of this year's INREV Fund Termination Study show that investors are liquidating their bad performing portfolios which are mainly located in Southern Europe. This contrast to the funds in extension or opting to extend. The majority of the assets of those funds are located in Western Europe.
The study indicates that total returns for those funds in extension phase or opting to extend are higher than for those funds that are in liquidation or opting to liquidate. Investors choose to sell off poorly performing portfolios, especially those that experienced difficulties during the Global Financial Crisis when performance was substantially lower.
