Real Estate Summary: Edition 4 2018Subscription
Real estate capitalization rates and yields are levelling off and rents are growing in most markets. There are multiple risks, including the steady escalation of the US-China trade war. We expect advanced economies to slow in 2019 but still remain in growth mode. New government policies increase the risk of error as central banks withdraw stimulus.
As growth in the European economy continues to broaden out across the region, we anticipate growing demand from institutional investors to not only secure attractive income in a low-yield environment, but to protect the real value of those returns over the long term. Inflation linked assets that may help cushion returns against interest rate rises continue to attract investor interest, helping secure protection against changes in the economic climate.

We are placing a stake in the ground; highlighting our intention to shape the future of the real asset investment landscape.
