Commercial Real Estate Remains the Great Investment Portfolio Diversifier by Kevin Sanz, CCIM, MSIRE

For 30 days in March the global stock markets shed 34 percent, jolting equity investors who just a few weeks earlier were celebrating once record market highs. While the equity markets have generally recovered, the pandemic’s long-term impact on the economy and their portfolios will undoubtedly leave a lasting impression. High net worth investors using this time to assess their existing portfolios and their exposure to market risks are finding private commercial real estate investments to provide the stability and diversification they need to ride out the highs and lows of the market.

Commercial real estate is best suited to patient investors with long-term investment horizons and easy access to other sources of liquidity, which tends to increase portfolio volatility. Although real estate investors cannot convert their investments to cash in a pinch, they do receive the stability and longevity of an appreciating asset that can continue to generate income even during times of economic uncertainty.
