It can also be an appealing way to increase the level of diversification in a portfolio focused on other asset classes, as it tends to perform very differently to equities or bonds when market or economic conditions change.
Property is a physical, tangible asset – ‘bricks and mortar’. When you buy a freehold property, you’re not just buying the structure of a building. You’re also buying an interest in the land that the building sits on. This is a key factor in the long-term value of property.
The value of investments, and the income from them, will fluctuate. This will cause the Fund price to fall as well as rise and you may not get back the original amount you invested. Property investments can be harder to buy and sell when compared to investments in fixed income securities and shares. An investment in the fund may be linked to those risks normally associated with an investment in company shares or fixed income securities.
