A litterature review and summary of current practical applications

Investors have historically used listed real estate to achieve a number of outcomes, ranging from general exposure to the asset class to meeting specific returns characteristics such as inflation hedging and tax-efficient income generation. However, following the events of the last five years, in common with other asset classes there is currently a re-assessment of the risk and return profile of listed real estate. The purpose of this study is twofold: (i) to conduct a review of academic literature and evidence on the use and performance of listed real estate, both as a separate asset class and in multi-asset portfolios, and (ii) to examine in detail how institutions are using listed real estate to achieve their investment objectives, and the role listed real estate is playing in the new fund structures they are creating to meet investor objectives.
