The main features of real estate as an asset class — relatively predictable income, the frequent inflation-linking of rents and a return stream that is relatively uncorrelated with other assets — make it a natural consideration for investors looking to achieve long-term savings goals. With uncertainty about the future path of the world economy, interest rates and inflation, it’s unsurprising that real assets are in renewed demand.
