Investors are anticipating the next downturn, but rather than taking their chips off the table, investors are looking to place capital this year before the next recession. According to an investor sentiment report from RCM LightBox, investors are looking to place capital in the first half of the year and before the November election.
“There are several factors driving the need to place capital ahead of a recession, whenever there’s a threat of a market downturn occurs,” Tina Lichens, COO RCM LightBox, tells GlobeSt.com. “Commercial real estate, has performed exceptionally well throughout the industry’s long run. In fact, most investors and investment advisors lament that there are few if any competitive alternatives that can produce the consistent yields that real estate has been producing. Investors see the U.S. as a safe-haven against the political uncertainty and currency fluctuations that can occur in other parts of the world and they want to continue building their portfolios here.”
