Reitway Global Positive on 2019

A lower global growth trajectory and a more benign interest-rate environment are contributing to a more positive outlook for global listed real estate this year, according to Garreth Elston, CIO of Reitway Global, which focuses on global listed property.

“Research conducted over the past two decades consistently demonstrates that listed real estate can act as a return enhancer with superior risk-adjusted returns for investment portfolios,” he said. “Despite this strong performance over robust time periods, REITs remain generally under-utilised as a diversification tool and most allocators, portfolio managers and individual investors remain underexposed.”
