2017 Real Assets Outlook

Real asset exposures can provide three key portfolio benefits: inflation protection, an attractive risk-adjusted return and portfolio level diversification. In the 2017 Real Assets Outlook, Verus highlights the following insights:

  • Risk of unexpected inflation shock suggests it is prudent to maintain real asset exposure
  • Seek a portfolio of assets with risk exposures beyond inflation
  • Within real estate, we recommend a conservative approach to leverage, liquidity, quality and pace of capital deployment
  • Our outlook for energy and certain metal commodity prices look favorable beyond 2-3 years

We look forward to discussing this research with you.
