In this video, Gregg Fisher shares an overlooked big investment opportunity with WealthTrack Anchor and Executive Producer Consuelo Mack:
“We find that investors tend to be underexposed to commercial real estate or even real estate in general. It’s not uncommon for an investor to own their home or maybe a second home, but as a percentage of their net worth, commercial real estate tends to be tiny. It’s particularly tiny, if not even not existent, when we ask U.S. investors particularly what exposure they have to foreign real estate markets. So if you’re just wanting to add an asset class to your portfolio that has a reasonable expected long-term return that adds a diversification benefit to the portfolio, global real estate seems to be something that most investors don’t already own that would, in fact, qualify in that regard.”
Jason Wolf also shares his thoughts on the appeal of global commercial real estate in this episode video preview.
