Core commercial real estate: An examination of public vs. private

Learn how diversifying with private core real estate can benefit your portfolio.

What You'll Get

We'll lay out, in plain English, the differences between public and private real estate from the perspective of advisors allocating to the space. We'll dispel the belief that private real estate lags public real estate, discuss why it's important to include private real estate in most portfolios, and show how including less liquid investments may actually protect investors from the biases we all struggle with, whether we want to acknowledge those biases or not.

Including answers to questions such as:

  • What is core real estate?

  • Is a REIT ETF considered "core"?

  • What is a cap rate and is it correlated to interest rates?

  • Do public REIT price movements lead private market value changes?
