Reshaping real estate image

Different parts of real estate have experienced contrasting fortunes during COVID.

Lockdowns and social distancing measures have severely impacted the hospitality and retail sectors globally.

However, we expect a recovery in leisure travel to boost demand, while business and convention travel will lag.

The industrial sector – such as warehousing – continues to benefit from the surge in e-commerce activity, including online grocery shopping. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has increased our reliance on and accelerated the need for digital infrastructure.

The increased demand has spurred the need for the ground-up development of new data centers and cell towers globally

Real estate opportunities

We favor strategies from experienced real estate managers specializing in the hospitality sector.

We also recommend strategies that provide exposure to digitization beneficiaries, including warehousing and digital infrastructure.
