Positive contributors to relative performance included stock selection in the residential sector, and underweight allocations to the lodging and office sectors. An underweight allocation to the self storage and shopping center sectors, along with an overweight to the diversified sector, detracted from relative performance.
Year to date, positive contributors to relative performance included stock selection in the diversified, healthcare, and triple net sectors.

In the May 2021 REIT Outlook titled, “In Case of Inflation, Buy REITs,” we address the current inflation scenario in the US, and how investors can position their portfolios for the risk of rising inflation. We believe that inflation will likely be temporary, and agree with comments from Fed Chairman Powell that inflation will drift above the 2% target and come back down. However, we point out the risks that could make inflation more than temporary, and explain why REITs are an excellent allocation to hedge a portfolio for such a scenario, especially versus fixed income. As such, we recommend investors have a REIT allocation of 10-15% for proper protection and to provide a rising income stream.
