Australian Real Estate Investment Trusts (AREITs) have been one the biggest beneficiaries of the changing economy over the last 12 months. In this episode, we chat with Justin Pica, Regional Portfolio Manager at CBRE Investment Management, to discuss the future of the office sector, the advent of online shopping, the rise of inflation, and active management. We also explore upcoming challenges and opportunities in the sector and how investors can gain a potential source of income and growth from AREITs.

Past performance of various investment strategies, sectors, vehicles and indices are not indicative of future results. Investing in infrastructure securities involves risk including potential loss of principal. Infrastructure equities are subject to risks similar to those associated with the direct ownership of infrastructure assets. Portfolios concentrated in infrastructure securities may experience price volatility and other risks associated with non-diversification. While equities may offer the potential for greater long-term growth than some debt securities, they generally have higher volatility. International investments may involve risk of capital loss from unfavorable fluctuation in currency values, from differences in generally accepted accounting principles, or from economic or political instability in other nations. There is no guarantee that risk can be managed successfully. There are no assurances performance will match or outperform any particular benchmark. Indices are unmanaged and not available for direct investment.
