Real Estate

Investing in bricks and mortar

A foundation for income and capital growth

Commercial real estate can provide long-term returns through rental income, rental growth and capital appreciation. Investments focus on physical properties, such as offices, retail, industrial and logistics, as well as other sectors such as hotels, retirement living and leisure.

Real estate managers own and manage properties, and can potentially add value through focused active asset management. Property’s physical nature also provides a store of value for investors.

Building returns

Rental income makes up the majority of long-term commercial real estate returns. This income tends to be stable for the length of the lease. An asset’s rental income can also provide inflation protection over the medium term and investors may benefit from the potential for capital growth, subject to supply and demand, as well as the asset’s income durability.

Potential benefits:

  • Potentially attractive long-term returns and capital growth
  • Diversification away from other asset classes such as equities and bonds
  • Physical asset that can be actively managed
  • Lower volatility than other asset classes

Risk warnings
Past performance is not a guide to future performance and may not be repeated.
The value of investments and the income from them may go down as well as up and investors may not get back the amounts originally invested. Exchange rate changes may cause the value of any overseas investments to rise or fall.
Alternatives can be more volatile than shares and bonds, and it may be harder to cash in the investment at short notice. Private Assets offer less liquidity than publicly listed securities. Please note: this is not a complete list of risks but rather an overview of some risks.
