I’ve been toing and froing on this one for a while and I was hoping people could chime in with their opinions to help me settle the matter once and for all.
In a nutshell: I’m trying to decide whether to add allocations to property and/or infrastructure ETFs/ITs within my portfolio. I’m only talking around say a 5% allocation, 8% max.
On the plus side, I’d be a more diversified away from equities and bonds.
But, on t’other hand, I’ve always thought my existing index trackers more or less have me covered property-wise because they will include Reits.
I’m leaning towards avoiding tinkering unless someone can convince me otherwise.
@kali – if I remember rightly, you have a fair ol’ allocation to Reits, so I’d appreciate your thoughts on why you’re overweight property (if indeed you are) and any pros I may be overlooking.
