Aon white paper examines new investment opportunities in property

LONDON (11 July 2017) – Aon plc (NYSE:AON), has released a new paper, ‘Constructing Your Property Portfolio’ which looks at the new investment opportunities for pension schemes within the property asset class.

While most pension schemes invest in property through UK core commercial property funds, Aon is seeing a number of other investment opportunities for schemes to consider. These offer strategies which can help enhance returns, improve income or even complement existing liability driven investment (LDI) portfolios.

Nick Duff, partner at Aon Hewitt, said:
“Overall, we believe a well-diversified property portfolio across different strategies and regions – rather than just focused on UK core commercial property – will help schemes and their wider investment and funding objectives.

“The allocation to UK commercial property has been very beneficial to schemes but we think it’s time for them to reshape their property exposure and to reduce reliance on just UK commercial property. Now is the moment to consider higher overall allocations to property relative to equities and bonds. The opportunities are very compelling.”

‘Constructing Your Property Portfolio’ is available at:
