Global Real Estate Securities
Listed real estate offers the liquidity that may be important to balance clients' existing investments. Global Real Estate Securities Strategies offer broad diversification opportunities and the ability to augment an existing investment program with targeted regional or country exposure. Client strategies can emphasize income by focusing mainly on REITs, or can include investments in listed Real Estate Operating Companies (REOCs) that develop real estate globally and provide access to growing economies.
U.S. REIT Securities Strategies
The U.S. REIT market is one of the most specialized listed property markets in the world, offering potential diversification opportunities via exposure to specific property types and markets across the country. Our U.S. Equity REIT Strategy is focused on traditional property sectors and equity REITs, while our U.S. All REIT Strategy invests in the finance and non-traditional property sectors.
Europe Real Estate Securities
We believe publicly listed equity is underrepresented as a proportion of investment grade real estate in Europe, offering significant opportunities for market expansion. A European regional strategy provides exposure to a number of diverse real estate markets, economies and property types.
Asia Pacific Real Estate Securities
The Asia Pacific region offers a number of distinct real estate securities investment opportunities. Strategies can focus on income, growth or both. Real estate equity is listed in Australia and Japan, as well as in Hong Kong and Singapore, where companies have exposure to China and other emerging economies.
