31-Dec-2021 - Jai Kapadia, Portfolio Manager ,
Following a strong 2021, we are cautiously optimistic for global real estate returns in 2022. While valuations based on net asset value and dividend yield spreads are no longer cheap compared to historical averages, we remain constructive on the earnings potential for several property types driven by recovering rents and falling supply.

Investment Objective

To increase the value of its shares in the long term through both growth in the value of, and income from, its investments. The fund invests mainly in a diversified portfolio of securities issued by real-estate related companies. The companies may be anywhere in the world, including emerging markets.

Investment Approach

  • Employ fundamental research with a bottom-up approach.
  • Assess the capability, strategy, and management of the business.
  • Evaluate the asset base potential.
  • Understand the supply and demand dynamics by property and market.
  • Analyze balance sheet strength and flexibility.
  • Integrate a risk-adjusted perspective throughout our analysis.
  • Establish whether we would want to own a business for the long term.
  • Leverage the deep knowledge base at T. Rowe Price, including dedicated analysts in North America, Europe, and Asia.
  • Environmental, social and governance ("ESG") factors with particular focus on those considered most likely to have a material impact on the performance of the holdings or potential holdings in the funds’ portfolio are assessed. These ESG factors, which are incorporated into the investment process alongside financials, valuation, macro-economics and other factors, are components of the investment decision. Consequently, ESG factors are not the sole driver of an investment decision but are instead one of several important inputs considered during investment analysis.

Portfolio Construction

  • Typically 40-80 securities
  • Invest in highest conviction ideas
  • Diversified by property type and geography, with at least 40% invested outside the U.S.
  • Sector weights are the result of bottom-up security selection
  • Country weightings +/- 10% of the benchmark
  • Individual position sizes range from +/- 5% of the benchmark
  • Continually monitor investments to ensure:
    • Execution and results are tracking our expectations
    • Strategy intact and investment thesis unfolding as expected

The U.S. remains the dominant country allocation within the portfolio. Real estate stocks in Japan, the UK, and Hong Kong also represent significant positions. In Germany, we added to a position in a company that owns a large multifamily residential portfolio. Despite market fears, we believe there is limited scope for tightening rent regulations in the upcoming legislative cycle, and we believe the company has the potential to outperform as market sentiment adjusts to the new governing coalition. We eliminated our position in a company focused on the affordable housing market that we believe has less upside potential.
