the new normal
Finding opportunities in growth equity, fixed income, real estate, and alternatives in a rapidly changing global landscape.
THE NEW PROPERTY MARKET PULSE
The pandemic profoundly disrupted property markets. Retail stores shuttered for a time, and companies abruptly transitioned staff to working from home, causing many office buildings to stand empty. However, opportunity in commercial real estate remains abundant—from the warehouses storing the volumes of goods being ordered by at-home workers, to the physical data centres keeping records of these online transactions. In this shifting landscape, active managers have an important role to play in uncovering attractive investments within the sector.
This instalment in a multimedia series by PGIM Investments and Citywire delves into the value of REITs within a diversified portfolio, the ascendance of certain types of real estate, and what the e-commerce revolution means for the future of retail space.
