The ‘smart money’ is called smart for a reason. Often institutions, private equity groups, and hedge funds are the first to see trends and values in the market. So, when one of the largest managers dedicated to an asset class makes a big-time buyout in a sector, it makes sense for us regular investors to pay attention. In this case, we’re talking about retail real estate.
With a surprise $14 billion buyout of a top triple-net leased retail property owner, the spotlight is now firmly shining on the left-for-dead sector, highlighting the potential value and high yields that exist within the property sub-class.
For investors, following the smart money’s leads into the sector could be one of the best moves for their portfolio in the current environment.
