Brookfield plans $10 billion investment in Indian real estate in 3-5 years

Brookfield Asset Management, a leading global institutional investor, is set to inject over $10 billion into India's real estate sector over the next three to five years. This ambitious investment strategy aims to seize the burgeoning opportunities presented by India's dynamic real estate market.

Ankur Gupta, Managing Partner and Head of Real Estate for Asia Pacific at Brookfield, expressed confidence in India's growth potential, reaffirming the firm's dedication to pursuing strategic avenues for expansion. Currently managing a portfolio exceeding 51 million sq ft across seven major Indian cities, Brookfield is poised to double its real estate assets under management (AUM) within the specified timeframe.

Brookfield's roadmap for growth in India revolves around diversification and expansion across residential, industrial, and retail segments. Gupta highlighted the untapped potential within India's real estate landscape relative to its advancing economy, underlining the firm's commitment to urban development and affordability through mixed-use projects.

The firm's strategy encompasses holistic asset management and strategic partnerships to navigate various market scenarios effectively. Notably, Brookfield's substantial investments in India's hospitality sector, particularly The Leela hotel portfolio, underscore its long-term commitment and execution capabilities within the Indian market.

Looking ahead, Gupta foresees promising growth prospects for The Leela and India's real estate sector as a whole, buoyed by positive industry trends and economic expansion. Brookfield remains actively engaged in identifying opportunities for portfolio expansion and capital optimization to sustain momentum.

With a diversified portfolio spanning listed Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) and segments such as commercial offices, hospitality, housing, industrial warehousing, and coworking spaces, Brookfield is poised to capitalize on India's evolving real estate landscape. Gupta stressed the significance of consistency and strategic focus in leveraging past successes to drive future growth initiatives.

Despite the intricacies of the Indian market, Brookfield views India as a premier investment destination with robust returns. Gupta attributed the firm's stellar track record in India to its relentless pursuit of operational excellence and adeptness in aligning with the favorable macroeconomic environment to drive business objectives forward.
