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.
Evergreen is making a dent in this problem.
