Non-Traded NAV REITs Raised a Net Total of Negative $6.2 Billion in 2023

For all of 2023, non-traded net asset value real estate investment trusts reported nearly $10.2 billion of fundraising, $1.9 billion of dividend reinvestment, and $18.3 billion of redemptions, resulting in negative net fundraising of approximately $6.2 billion. In 2022, NAV REITs raised a net total of nearly $23.2 billion.

“Fundraising by NAV REITs in 2023 and so far in 2024 has remained muted. Since year-end 2021 the weighted average change in NAV per share has come down just 3.1% while their traded REIT counterparts have experienced an overall change in consensus analyst NAV of a negative 13.8% during the same period,” said Kevin T. Gannon, chairman of Robert A. Stanger & Co., Inc.

“Accordingly, investors have been withdrawing capital from NAV REITs to the tune of nearly $33 billion of redemptions over the last two-plus years,” added Gannon.

As of Feb. 29, 2024, NAV REITs had a combined aggregate NAV of $92.9 billion, a year-over-year decrease of nearly 15%.

For the full year of 2023, effective and currently offered non-listed business development companies reported nearly $21.2 billion of fundraising, $1.8 billion of dividend reinvestment, and $4.2 billion of redemptions resulting in net fundraising of approximately $18.8 billion as compared to nearly $22.3 billion of net fundraising in 2022.

“In terms of net fundraising levels, non-listed BDCs have held up much better than NAV REITs due to the generally higher average dividend levels of nearly 10.1% versus 5.4% in NAV REITs at year-end 2023,” said Randy Sweetman, executive managing director at Stanger.

As of Jan. 31, 2024, effective and currently offered non-listed BDCs had a combined aggregate NAV of approximately $58.9 billion, a year-over-year increase of nearly 55%.
