Long-Standing Commitment to Real Estate Investments
At BearBull Group, we have always highlighted the benefits of including direct or indirect real estate in the asset management process. In the ‘90s already, we recommended balancing investment strategies by including real estate investments into mixed-asset portfolios. In 1998 we carried out the first Swiss study highlighting the benefits of including real estate in the context of global asset allocation. Our study “Real estate: Impact on investment strategy performance and risk (1984-1997)” was used as a reference case study by the Swiss Pensions.
We demonstrated that introducing real estate as an additional asset class in the universe of assets traditionally included in an institutional investment strategy generated an overall improvement in performance and decrease in risk. This principle remains applicable and is ever more justified in the context of the interest rate cycle currently coming to an end, as suggested by the most recent revisions of our academic studies (“Impact of incorporating real estate on the performance and risk of investment strategies subject to Swiss Pension Funds regulations” and “Real estate at a time of a crisis, 2007-2012”) and regularly updated real estate market analyses.
Direct Investments and Investment Funds
Convinced of the advantages of incorporating real estate in the asset management process, we have developed several solutions to implement active real estate investment management concepts globally and through transparent and tradable real estate investment vehicles.
We also offer our services to investors wishing to carry out direct investments in the United Arab Emirates and abroad.
Real Estate Investment Strategy Success Factors
A successful real estate investment strategy depends on an analysis of the following factors:
– Top-down analysis of the economic cycle, inflation and interest rates
– Analysis of the underlying real estate markets
– Geographic allocation
– Allocation between residential, commercial, industrial and hotel sectors
– Tactical allocation among the different types of real estate investments
– Bottom-up analysis of performance, yields, valuations, risk premiums, debt and vacancy rates
Diversification into Foreign Investments
Internationally, the opportunity to diversify is greater than locally. Correlations between international and UAE real estate investments are low, and international diversification is clearly superior, often providing far greater returns and potential for capital gains.
