We address the attractiveness of 66 countries worldwide for institutional real estate investments through the construction of a composite index. For the index's composition, we refer to the results of prior research on the parameters determining real estate investment activity on an aggregated country level. Our index reveals a country ranking that correlates reasonably with commercial real estate investments, as proven with back-tests over six years. We increase the transparency of market variables for decision-making in global real estate asset allocation and provide the key determinants that shape national real estate markets. The results highlight the strengths and weaknesses of developed, developing and emerging economies and provide guidelines for political improvements to attract international capital to spur real estate investment activity.
