Some Additional Evidence on the Performance of Commingled Real Estate Investment Funds
This paper examines the investment performance of two commingled real estate investment funds (CREFs) over the past twenty years. Results indicate that these funds: (1) offered very good portfolio diversification potential by reducing risk and increasing return; and (2) provided a good hedge against (anticipated) inflation over the entire period of study. Risk-adjusted performance for these CREFs generally remained superior to stock and bond performance because of the lower volatility in CREF returns. While CREFs provided a significant hedge against inflation during the 1972-1991 period, this hedge was significantly diminished during the 1984-1991 period, a period when the rate of inflation was relatively low.
