LaSalle’s Swaringen On The Key Benefits Of Real Estate Investing

Allan Swaringen, Managing Director at LaSalle Investment Management joined Julie Cooling, Founder & CEO, RIA Channel to discuss the benefits of real estate investing, sector trends, and allocation considerations.

“We get asked a lot about embracing alternatives and moving outside of the traditional 60/40 portfolio. We think real estate should be that first addition,” says Swaringen pointing to real estate’s inflation-hedging characteristics and potential to deliver differentiated streams of income. LaSalle focuses on core, durable income real estate, and offers diversified exposure to residential, industrial, and healthcare sectors.
