The financing of urban regeneration and levering of private-sector investment remains a major policy issue, This article, utilising the results of a behavioural survey, analyses the motivations of investors and their participation across a range of regeneration initiatives. The pattern of investment activity over the market cycle, reasons for holding an urban regeneration portfolio, evaluative factors and perspectives concerning the attraction of private finance into urban regeneration are considered. The findings indicate that regeneration initiatives provide a significant cushioning effect but that, in terms of holding projects in a property portfolio or evaluating schemes, market-based factors relating to return and risk are core influences.
