Banks are well known to invest into real estate at many different levels and in many different market places both nationally and internationally. The Banking industry is like the insurance and pensions industries, in that they will at a corporate level invest heavily into various hard and soft class investment types and will usually provide above average returns to the Banks' shareholders.
Finding out who are the top real estate investment firms either nationally or internationally is not always easy to spot as the way Banks provide investor return data will vary from Bank to bank. Usually the Bank will operate separate divisions to cater for the residential or retail arm of its business which will be totally independent of its investment arm or section. This allows the Banks to run under different business programs and marketing tactics, as the end users who will invest and use the investment element of a Bank are often different people but can be the same.
Each year figures are released on a quarterly, annual and sometimes more regular basis, as to the profit or loss that these firms in the Banking sector are making, and these can provide some insights into who are the TOP real estate investment Banking firms currently.
