The article focuses on private equity and real estate might be become attractive with investors, but even with increased fund raising, supply and demand imbalance in both sectors is expected to continue in 2004. In private equity, general and limited partners might be caught in a Catch-22 with more funds being raised, there is more competition among general partners for investor dollars, and with shrinking fund sizes, investors are having a hard time reserving space in the top-tiered funds, according to consultants. The continued trend of pension funds, endowments and foundations increasing their allocations to real estate is expected to add to an already clogged pipeline of capital still trying to get into real estate.
