BENGALURU: Many Japanese investors and developers are looking to increase their investments in India’s real estate sector, as they look to tap opportunities in the Asia’s largest economy. While it is the return that is enticing the Japanese fund, long term money is what attracts the Indian developers to opt for the capital. Some of the Japanese funds and companies that are looking to invest or increase their investments includes Mitsui Fudson, Mitsubushi Corporation, Sumitomo Corporation and Genkai Capital. While most of the capital is for big ticket opportunities in the commercial real estate, residential investment is also being selectively evaluated.
“Japan is the third-largest investor in India and an entity that looks to invest in long-term projects, the commercial real estate space is one that is conducive to Japanese expertise,” said Arshdeep Sethi, managing director, Executive Board, RMZ Corp. The firm recently partnered with Japanese leading global real estate developer Mitsui Fudosan to develop commercial project worth around a $1 billion in India. Governmental support through the Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA) has helped cement stronger relations between the two nations.
