MSCI REAL ESTATE RESEARCH SNAPSHOT 2018

MSCI REAL ESTATE RESEARCH SNAPSHOT 2018


 

This year’s Real Estate Research Snapshot highlights the broad range of investment problems MSCI Real Estate’s data can be applied to. We begin by emphasizing the importance of global consistency in data by providing an overview of global property market trends across sectors and markets. As part of the wider MSCI business, we also explore issues relevant to asset owners, looking at real estate from a higher perspective. Questions surrounding interest rate risk and currency hedging are addressed here, as are broader questions of how to consistently approach the analysis of core and opportunistic real estate. We hope the Real Estate Research Snapshot provides you with some useful insights to inform your future real estate investment decisions and invite you to engage with us to find actionable solutions.
