The Need For Private Real Estate

In the past two decades, we’ve experienced two severe market declines, and two slow, tepid economic recoveries.

We live in a new world of lower growth with longer and woefully underfunded retirements. At today’s valuations, traditional stock and bond investments alone – in a low-yield environment – are not going to cut it.

Private real estate funds are the solution. A pool of diversified real estate can offer investors the potential for higher returns, inflation protection and reduced volatility relative to the stock market.

Yet 95% of retail investors do not own any commercial real estate investments.

 

We believe the reason for this is two-fold:

1. Investors lack exposure to the world of private investments and are not fully comfortable with terminology / investment mechanics.

2. Investors do not know how to find, evaluate and invest in high-quality, passive alternative investments.
