Abstract

Suggests that capital investments normally flow to economic sectors and regions which produce the highest returns within certain risk parameters. Therefore geographical areas perceived to be peripheral to the core economy of a certain country, region or city suffer when attracting institutional investment. Investigates investment flows into real estate in two peripheral economies: Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. Analyses data from the Investment Property Databank (IDP) and market participants in terms of regional and sectoral performance, and assesses institutional investors′ perceptions of investment activity in Ireland as a peripheral European region. Also compares investment performance of institutional property holdings in Ireland to returns in the UK.
