FUND MANAGERS FAVOUR ALTERNATIVE PROPERTY SEGMENTS, AREF STATISTICS REVEAL
The Association of Real Estate Funds’ (AREF) Investment Quarterly (IQ)* for the third quarter of 2012 reveals that over the last year balanced fund managers have been reweighting their portfolios to move away from mainstream to more alternative property segments – in particular leisure (either individual assets or parks), hotels, residential, student accommodation, health care and care homes.
The Association of Real Estate Funds (AREF) has voiced strong objections over the indiscriminate nature of the FSA’s proposed restriction on promoting Unregulated Collective Investment Schemes (UCIS).
In response to the European Commission’s consultation on UCITS VI, the Association of Real Estate Funds (AREF) strongly supports the proposals on long-term investment which will allow retail clients the choice to take a longer-term view when investing in property.
