Zinger Key Points
  • NYC’s $863 million portfolio is diversified across eight office and retail condominium assets located primarily in Manhattan.
  • During the second quarter, Necessity Retail REITs portfolio occupancy rate was at 90.9%.

Equity real estate investment trusts (REITs) have outperformed mortgage REITs, as mortgage real estate investment trusts have posted annualized returns of 8.2% over the past 10 years.

While rising interest rates are not necessarily a catalyst for REITs, the average lease term of the underlying property is the key driver of interest rate sensitivity.

Short-term leases ranging from one to five years tend to outperform long-term leases ranging from five to 10 years during periods of rising interest rates. Another factor to watch out for is that real estate investment trusts tend to be more volatile than the S&P 500, as the Vanguard Real Estate Index Fund ETF VNQ is down roughly 32% year-to-date.
