Low interest rates, low inflation, low growth and a multitude of geo-political challenges is now the well established state of affairs. How has listed real estate positioned itself in this environment?
Robert Promisel, Portfolio Manager, Resolution Capital
During our 20 minute webinar, Rob Promisel (Global Portfolio Manager) will provide a recap of Fund performance over the December quarter and discuss the key technology trends impacting real estate. Technology is causing disruption for real estate e.g virtual supply (Airbnb creating sleepless nights for hotel owner/operators and Etail replacing shopping malls), work place changes, sustainability requirements. The risk of building obsolescence is now higher and listed REITs, given their scale are better placed to deal with these challenges versus many private operators.
Looking through recent market volatility, REIT earnings growth remains well above inflation and REITS are trading at a material discount to direct property. REIT management teams are using this backdrop to sell mature assets, manage leverage to sensible levels and re-invest into value-add development. The prospect of further M&A activity remains high.
This webinar will talk through the risks and opportunities for REIT earnings growth.
Andrew Parsons, Managing Director, Resolution Capital
Earnings season is underway and has seen a very strong Q2 reporting season for the holdings in the Resolution Capital Global Property Securities Fund. The REITs are enjoying record levels of occupancy and income growth, against a still muted supply outlook. The U.S. apartment sector has been a notable performer given the favourable demographic changes in key U.S. Coastal locations. Transaction activity remains high and capital flows into direct real estate remain robust, which is also supporting underlying asset values.
