2022 Contributors Summary
2022 Detractors Summary
In the January 2023 REIT Outlook titled, “2023 Chilton REIT Forecast,” we provide a look-back at what ultimately became the second worst year in REIT history on a total return basis, discuss our economic outlook and overall REIT forecast for 2023, as well as address the risks, both upside and downside, that could arise as the year progresses forward. While our composite performed roughly in line with the index, our strategy of allocating to high growth and fortress balance sheets didn’t produce the outperformance that we thought it would. However, we expect 2023 to be the year when the ‘chickens come to roost’ and strong fundamentals to outperform. We look forward to another year serving our clients, and thank you all for your confidence.
