Research Paper 1: ''The Volatility of LRE in Europe and Portfolio Implications''

Written by: Martin E. Hoesli, Louis Johner and Zhaklin Krayushkina (University of Geneva)

"During the past 20 years, European listed real estate experienced several periods of heightened volatility. In our research paper, we study how volatility varies over time and across sectors and/or countries, and how to take advantage of large price movements in the context of a listed real estate portfolio. We demonstrate the usefulness for investors of considering tactical rebalancing schemes based on price volatilities and premia/discounts to NAV, and we assess the incremental performance that can be achieved when implementing these schemes. We find that taking into account volatility in portfolio allocation decisions is especially beneficial for investors relying on stable and well-balanced allocation strategies, like most institutional investors."
