Over the last ten years, core real estate as measured by the NFI-ODCE has delivered an annualized return of almost 9% and has helped boost institutional portfolio returns. However, given the consensus view that we are in the late stage of the economic cycle, coupled with overall global uncertainty and moderating returns in the asset class, investors are wondering if it is time to reduce their allocation to real estate, and if so, where they should allocate these funds.
The following article strives to answer these questions by analyzing the current landscape for real estate investments, including opportunities outside of the traditional “core” strategies that have historically constituted the majority of real estate investments for our clients. Furthermore, we offer guidance on where to allocate assets outside of the real estate asset class if investors have built up overweights to the asset class over the last decade of outperformance.
