In the October 2021 REIT Outlook titled, “Uneven COVID Response Worldwide Creates Opportunity in Global REITs”, we provide a refresher on the Chilton Global Real Estate Strategy, which now has a 32-month track record. The outperformance versus the benchmark is attributable to the three-pronged alpha-production method that we believe is repeatable going forward. The Chilton Global Real Estate Strategy is an appropriate solution for investors seeking to diversify and gain exposure to international markets, creating lower volatility.
