CBRE’s Treitel On Opportunities In Infrastructure and Real Estate

Jon Treitel, CFA, CAIA, Portfolio Strategist for Listed Real Assets, CBRE Investment Management joined Keith Black, Managing Director, RIA Channel to discuss global real assets trends and opportunities in 2023 and beyond.

The perfect storm of inflation, rising rates, and supply chain challenges have led to slowing economic growth and increased macroeconomic volatility heading into 2023. “The good news,” says Treitel on the current environment,” is that even amidst the chaos, real estate and infrastructure can serve investors well.” Historically, an allocation to real assets, has provided inflation protection, a differentiated source of returns, and diversification benefits. Because much of the real estate and infrastructure sector is tied to contracted and regulated returns, it has the potential to offer resiliency in trying times. Other tailwinds contributing to Treitel’s optimistic outlook on listed real estate and infrastructure include long-term megatrends like decarbonization and digitalization. Treitel expects listed real estate and infrastructure to continue to deliver strong dividend yield growth and total return potential in 2023.
