Real Assets: 2019 Outlook – DWS – 12.13.18


Now On Demand.

Recent market volatility, driven by rising interest rates and inflation fears, has highlighted the strategic benefits of including real assets within a well-diversified portfolio.

Current market conditions could be favorable for several segments of the Liquid Real Asset investment universe. Liquid Real Assets—including real estate, infrastructure, natural resource equities and commodities—have historically demonstrated responses to capital market shifts that can be complementary to traditional asset classes.

  • Their outlooks for growth and inflation and the corresponding impact on real assets
  • Valuations and opportunities for alpha

Important risk information
Stocks may decline in value. Investing in foreign securities presents certain risks, such as currency fluctuations, political and economic changes, and market risks. Emerging markets tend to be more volatile and less liquid than the markets of more mature economies, and generally have less diverse and less mature economic structures and less stable political systems than those of developed countries. Investing in derivatives entails special risks relating to liquidity, leverage and credit that may reduce returns and/or increase volatility. Bond investments are subject to interest-rate, credit, liquidity and market risks to varying degrees. When interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall. Credit risk refers to the ability of an issuer to make timely payments of principal and interest. The fund invests in commodity-linked derivatives which may subject the fund to special risks. Market price movements or regulatory and economic changes will have a significant impact on the fund’s performance. There are special risks associated with an investment in real estate, including REITS. These risks include credit risk, interest rate fluctuations and the impact of varied economic conditions. Companies in the infrastructure, transportation, energy and utility industries may be affected by a variety of factors, including, but not limited to, high interest costs, energy prices, high degrees of leverage, environmental and other government regulations, the level of government spending on infrastructure projects, intense competition and other factors. Any fund that focuses in a particular segment of the market or region of the world will generally be more volatile than a fund that invests more broadly. See the prospectus for details.
