CityAm- The Case for Real Asset Exposure

Rising inflation and interest rates have brought the merits of real asset investing into focus and shone the spotlight on investment advice that has stood the test of time for almost 50 years. The traditional concept of a 60/40 portfolio is under attack, as both equities and bonds have fallen in tandem. For investors seeking protection during periods of rising interest rates, high inflation and high volatility, investments whose value is directly linked to hard, tangible assets offer a potential solution. Portfolios that include exposure to real assets may provide a range of benefits, including:

  • Potential financial returns: exposure to real assets offers investors both a.) regular income and b.) strong risk-adjusted returns
  • Portfolio benefits: real assets are traditionally less volatile than many other asset classes, while they also provide portfolio diversification and can serve as a potential inflation hedge
  • Social and environmental benefits: real asset investment opportunities may allow individuals to prioritise positive outcomes for society and support the transition to a low-carbon economy
