REITs are a crucial asset class at the intersection of private, illiquid real estate and public, liquid securities.
Today’s combination of higher interest rates and climate risk is significantly correcting real estate values across North America. This complex new structural environment suggests that today’s REIT dividends may not not be a good predictor of future value. At the same time, a smart REIT strategy can substantially outperform a bearish real estate market.
Climate Alpha hedges accelerating climate change through anticipatory price discovery of resilient assets. We offer an opportunity to be a first-mover and market-maker in the resilient geographies of the future. Assets held in such portfolios will benefit from the growth of new demographic, commercial, and industrial hubs as economies gradually recenter away from over-priced and high-risk markets towards more stable and affordable locations.
Real estate and infrastructure rank among the top sectors investors have identified as areas of opportunity amidst climate change.
