Capital Markets Update: Q2 2021

Investment appetite unfazed by the pandemic resurgence in Q2 2021

August 04, 2021

The second pandemic wave disrupted life, just when the world was trying to adjust to the new realities. Optimism gave way to uncertainty and delay. However, investments in Indian real estate defied the trend and continued the momentum gained during the first quarter of 2021. Investors have come to accept that they must operate in an environment of constraints and uncertainty.

9x y-o-y rise in Q2 2021 investments

Note: Data for Q1 2021 was revised, as confirmation of some transactions were delayed by the pandemic related lockdowns. Investment numbers were compiled on best effort basis, but previously published numbers may be subject to change, after internal checks and confirmations, largely due to the unorganised nature of the market.
