The diversification and cashflow-matching characteristics benefits of real assets are well known. And, with bond yields likely to remain compressed into the future, it is understandable that pension scheme investors will continue to look to the asset class for positive returns.
Another trend in real assets is the growing influence of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors – and there is an increasing argument that integrating ESG into real asset portfolios is easier as investors are able to exert more influence over decision-making.
These trends are all positive for real assets, but the sector is not without its challenges. With new entrants coming to the party and existing investors increasing their allocations, there is a risk of overcrowding – and rising prices - in parts of the market; while liquidity and the speed of deployment also are a concern for some.
This webinar looks at some of these issues – assessing the cashflow matching attributes of real assets, examining how ESG can be integrated into this asset class and also looking to address some of the concerns investors have about the asset class.
