Our strategies have consistently delivered higher returns than the market average over one, three and five-year terms.
Pension Fund Allocation to Real Estate
As pension funds look to further manage capital volatility through a reduced exposure to global equities aligned with the need for increased income to match liabilities, the search for an alternative proxy for indexed-linked gilts has become more focused.
With indexed-linked real estate assets trading at a healthy arbitrage over the redemption yield on gilts, Cluttons Investment Management has made the case, in the downloadable research paper, for a strategic long-term increase to pension fund real estate allocation to both manage risk and reward.
