Cohen and Steers’ most and least favoured global real estate markets

Jon Cheigh, global portfolio manager of the Global Real Estate Securities fund at Cohen & Steers, discusses the opportunities available for real estate investors investing in listed properties as it is cheaper than deploying money into private markets. Cheigh highlights the opportunity in commercial real estate due to improving operating fundamentals in most global markets amid solid economic growth. He sees particular opportunities in US office, residential and data centres space, while the team approaches UK retail with caution.
