Real Estate Investments Safer than Other Sectors in Flailing Market

Real estate fund investments remain relatively stable despite a mercurial stock market, The New York Times reports. As the S&P 500 plunged 13.52 percent in the fourth quarter, FTSE Nareit All Equity R.E.I.T.s Index — the leading index of publicly traded real estate investment trusts — lost only 6.1 percent, marking a 4 percent loss for the entirety of 2018, compared to an S&P 500 loss of 4.4 percent, including dividends, for the same period. The sector has achieved comparative stability through tangible assets, banking on office buildings, malls and warehouses.
