New data show just how male-dominated the CRE industry is

Women who want to become CEO of a real estate fund manager may have a better shot across the ocean.

A mere 10 percent of senior executives at U.S. private real estate fund managers are female, according to a survey by research firm Preqin. That’s a far cry from France, where women occupy 17 percent of top jobs, Singapore (14 percent) and Hong Kong (12 percent).

Germany and the United Kingdom trail the U.S. with 9 percent each. The global average is 9.9 percent.

Women are even more rare at the highest echelons: They account for a mere 5 percent of CEOs, 6 percent of presidents and 2 percent of chairwomen globally. COOs and CFOs are more likely to be female, with shares of 16 and 18 percent respectively.

The Real Deal broke down the real estate industry’s diversity problem in the January issue.
