The Bull is Finally Showing Its Age

A trade-induced drag on global manufacturing has markets in disarray. Heightened equity volatility and lower bond yields are forcing investors to find alternative options. This comes as the Fed seeks a last-gasp attempt to pull the economy away from the edge.

What a Difference A Year Makes

Equity Volatility Has Climbed*

Bond Yields Have Plummeted**

Lower Rates Have Reset Your Options***

A Slowdown in Core Puts the Emphasis on Active Management

Real estate fundamentals typically move slowly, so the recent rapid deceleration in core private equity real estate appreciation requires your attention. Read our Q3 Real Estate commentary for full details.

Third-Party Appraisals

The Problem

It appears that third-party appraisals have lagged the rapid changes in retail, and are only now lowering their valuations to reflect higher cap rates, slower growth, and higher CAPEX requirements.

Cap Rates and Interest Rates

The Problem

Most private funds use fixed-rate leverage to boost returns. When rates fall, the value of that debt rises, lowering net asset values. Historically, higher building values offset this paradigm; but this is not the case today with historically low cap rates in place.

A New Way Forward

Potential Solution

We believe that a healthy consumer will boost sectors such as apartments, hospitals, and senior housing. In our view, value-add strategies may offer a more attractive total return moving forward.

Healthy Consumers May Aide Credit Markets

We believe healthy consumers will help avoid a repeat of 2008. Muted U.S. household debt will keep consumers spending, limiting the defaults that impact assets with a historically consistent income stream.
