In this video, Janus Henderson’s Global Property Equities Team discusses the benefits of an allocation to global real estate investment trusts (REITs), particularly in a slow-growing, low-yielding environment.

   Key Takeaways

  • The team believes that investors should consider global REITs for three key reasons: income, diversification and liquidity.
  • Over the long term, REITs have exhibited low correlation with bonds and equities and provided a cost-efficient way for investors to access global real estate markets.
  • REITs also have defensive characteristics, often investing in companies whose tenants have long-duration leases, which can help provide stability through different market conditions.
