In this edition of the Dutram Report, we take a closer look at real estate investing, and in particular, the world of REITs.
This corner of the market has been pretty unforgiving to investors as of late, and this is in stark contrast to what happened to start the year. After all, at the beginning of 2016, U.S. REIT ETFs like IYR and VNQ posted market-beating performances to start things off, but have since been on a serious slump and are now doing no better than the market at large from a year-to-date look.
Part of the reason for this sluggishness is the changing interest rate picture. REITs-- along with other rate sensitive segments-have been hit pretty hard as of late, as it now appears that the Fed could raise rates again to close out the year.
What is a real estate investor to do in this environment?
Well, for this edition of the Dutram Report , we talked to Jamie Anderson of Tierra Funds about this problem, as well as the outlook for rates and its impact on real estate in the near term. We also discuss the global real estate world and where some values might be appearing in that particular market.
Additionally, we talked about Jamie Anderson's company's fund, the TierraXP Latin America Real Estate ETF (LARE), and what sets it apart in this type of environment. The fund has managed to prosper in this difficult rate situation, but that could be due to key countries, like Brazil, lowering their rates instead of raising them right now. This is arguably akin to what the Fed here did for REITs here several years ago, potentially suggesting that a promising situation is developing for LARE right now too.
But as many investors know, the world of Latin America investing can be volatile, and there are several options in this market already, such as the iShares MSCI Mexico ETF (EWW) and the iShares MSCI Brazil ETF (EWZ). I make sure to find out what sets LARE apart from these, and why investors should give this fund a closer look if they are looking for real estate exposure in this uncertain time.
