Here at MSCI, we see our real estate investing clients – who range from small family offices to some of the largest pensions and sovereign wealth funds globally – coming to terms with challenges such as environmental, social and governance-related (ESG) risks, geopolitical uncertainty and disruptive technology.

For more than 40 years, MSCI has defined how investors use factors to analyse risk and return, from individual stocks to entire portfolios.
