WHY COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE?


Commercial real estate is often considered the fourth major asset class behind stocks, bonds and cash. Adding real estate to a portfolio may help investors increase income, reduce risk, hedge against inflation risk and gain upside growth potential.

DIVERSIFICATION1
Real estate can be a powerful diversifier
when added to a traditional investment
portfolio and may help improve returns
while decreasing overall portfolio risk.

LACK OF CORRELATION
Real estate is generally considered noncorrelated to overall movements in the stock market and may help in reducing exposure to stock market volatility.

ATTRACTIVE INCOME
Real estate often generates relatively
attractive and consistent income streams
via rents collected from long-term leases.
HEDGE AGAINST INFLATION
Hard assets like real estate generally move in conjunction with inflation thus providing some degree of protection against inflation risk.
