White Papers / Research from Cohen & Steers (Real Estate)

  • Preferred Securities: Meeting the Rising Rates Challenge download

    With interest rates more volatile and potentially moving higher, we believe preferred securities are well positioned relative to many other fixed income investments thanks to their high income, wide credit spreads and variety of lower-duration structures.

  • Real Asset Winners and Losers in a Trade War download

    Recent tariff actions by the U.S. and threats of retaliations have put the world at greater risk of a global trade war than at any time since the 1930s. While we don’t expect it to get that far, tit-for-tat tariffs among the world’s largest economies could take a toll on global supply chains, consumers and risk appetite, driving further market volatility. 

  • The Case for Global Listed Infrastructure download

    Allocations to listed infrastructure have been on the rise in recent years amid growing demand for real assets offering relatively predictable cash flows and the potential for attractive real returns. 

  • The Midstream Energy Cycle Has Turned download

    Shares of MLPs and midstream energy companies remain well below their 2014 highs following the downturn in energy prices and, more recently, uncertainties around FERC rate changes for MLPs. 

  • Building Better Portfolios With Listed Real Assets download

    We believe liquid real assets — including real estate securities, commodities, natural resource equities and listed infrastructure — offer an attractive way to enhance diversification, particularly as the market pivots away from quantitative easing and low interest rates to a policy-induced reflationary environment.
