YTD Detractors Summary
In the December 2021 REIT Outlook titled, “Property Type Round-Up from REIT World”, we provide a brief summary of our top takeaways from our meetings with 31 REIT management teams at the REIT World virtual conference. Almost all of the management teams were extremely upbeat about their businesses and the prospects for 2022. Office, cold storage, and lodging were the exceptions, though each company laid out a path for a return to pre-COVID fundamentals. Inflation was an important topic that we believe will be a benefit for many of the companies in the Chilton REIT Composite, especially those with shorter lease terms and fixed rate debt.
