What happened to the real estate funds industry in Costa Rica?

Since the advent of the subprime crisis in 2008, and although real estate funds industry has not shown an exponential growth, the occupation levels of these securities remain acceptable and returns are competitive at a time when dollar interest rates are "exceptionally low. "

The increased uncertainty and risk aversion in global markets has led investors to prefer short-term instruments (bonds and money market funds). Additionally, there are still doubts about the strength of the global economic recovery. These two factors, among other things, have had a major impact on the performance of most investment vehicles and real estate funds are no exception. These elements have affected real estate funds which have not shown a robust growth in assets, amount of funds or number of investors.
