Wooing institutional funds into real estate

Malaysia is not tapping enough of the institutional money from international fund managers and financial advisers to park their money in the real estate sector here.

“Malaysia has the potential but you do not win by just sitting back. You have to be in the field,” says International Real Estate Federation (FIABCI) US Chapter secretary-general William E Endsley.

Endsley, who is also a principal consultant with the Chicago-based World Citizen Consulting, believes Malaysia deserves to get more of the money from foreign institutional investors looking at the International Property Market Scorecard (IPMS). 

The scorecard is a measurement tool jointly developed by the Center for International Private Enterprise and the International Real Property Foundation.

Endsley, an adjunct professor from Georgetown University in Washington DC who lectures internationally to developers and property professionals, says Malaysia came up tops when he did a scorecard on the country alongside Cambodia, Sri Lanka Thailand and the Philippines.
