TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - November 18, 2016) - Timbercreek Asset Management, a global asset manager specializing in real estate and other alternative asset classes, today announced it has introduced a new microsite which provides educational information and valuable resources to financial professionals so they can better identify quality real estate investment opportunities for their clients.
The interactive site provides a dedicated space for advisors and easy access to the information they need to make informed decisions on the burgeoning real estate space.
By visiting the site, advisors will have access to:
- Insightful whitepapers and manager commentaries about global real estate investing
- Timely articles and interviews
- Online brochures
- Information about Timbercreek's global real estate investment solutions, including fact sheets, performance metrics and subscription documents
- Timbercreek support staff
The introduction of the microsite comes at a time when many are re-thinking the traditional asset allocation model and no longer relying on the standard mix of equity and fixed income to build their portfolios and meet their investment goals. Low yields from government bonds coupled with increasing volatility in equity markets has prompted many advisors to look for new vehicles, including alternative investments, to achieve the right mix for their clients. This includes real estate, which can offer a low-volatility buffer for portfolios while providing attractive income streams for a client's portfolio.
"Investors have significantly increased exposure to real estate assets over the past few years and this trend shows no signs of slowing down," says George Ganas, SVP Business Development and Client Services at Timbercreek Asset Management. "The launch of this site is just another example of Timbercreek's ongoing commitment to providing financial professionals with the tools they need to position their clients for success. We are excited to make this available to them in one dedicated and dynamic space."
Mr. Ganas noted that Timbercreek offers retail investors a variety of solutions designed to help them access the growth taking place in the real estate sector. These include closed- and open-end funds as well as a private limited partnership, which provide investors with access to globally diversified portfolios of real estate equity and debt investments. The products are managed by a global portfolio management team that has a 14+ year track record managing global real estate investment portfolios, delivering sustainable and growing returns to investors. The team is strategically located in key markets including Toronto, New York, London, Zurich and Hong Kong.
