When it comes to creating enduring partnerships with real estate limited partners, the annual investor meeting can be a critical tool that is sometimes overlooked. Yet, there are few, if any, guides as to what a successful annual investor meeting looks like.
In January 2017, Shelter Rock unveiled its first LP Perspective report interviewing institutional investors about what—if any—practices could make annual meetings more effective and valuable for LPs and GPs alike. Five core principles emerged including:
It takes more than just a pitchbook, polished presentation and top quartile track record to win the attention of today’s institutional investors.
But what exactly are LPs and their consultants looking for when they meet with a private real estate manager for the first time? In August 2017, Shelter Rock released its second LP Perspectives report asking institutional investors and investment consultants about best practices that could make first-time meetings more effective for LPs, GPs and advisors. Five core principles emerged including:

But what do institutional investors think? How are investors approaching the challenge of real estate obsolescence—whether economic, functional or technological—and, most importantly, how is it impacting their portfolio construction and allocation strategies, and how they underwrite their investment partners?
In January 2018, Shelter Rock released its third LP Perspectives report interviewing institutional investors and investment consultants in the U.S., Europe, and Latin America about their perspectives on real estate obsolescence.
