    Adaptation is Key as Real Estate Continues to act as a “Shock Absorber” Amidst Increasing Market Volatility in North America

    CHICAGO (July 26, 2018) — According to LaSalle Investment Management’s (“LaSalle”) Mid-Year Investment Strategy Annual (“Mid-Year ISA”) 2018, the real estate portfolio strategies recommended in last December’s ISA generally held up against both expected and unexpected market forces throughout North America, despite being faced with abrupt changes including structural and cyclical shifts. In summary, real estate continued to perform as a “shock absorber” against market volatility that picked up in both the fixed income and equity markets. The U.S. and Canadian real estate markets continue to see the Goldilocks theme holding up as the odds of a financial crisis or a major global recession remain very low for the rest of year. Looking ahead, the probability for a continued global expansion remains high for 2019.
