Index provider FTSE Group has announced the launch of the new FTSE Epra/Nareit global indices, which represent a composite of both developed and emerging subsets.

As part of this continued expansion, the following new regional indexes have been added to the FTSE Epra/Nareit Global Real Estate Index Series: Global Index; Global ex US Index; Americas Index; Asia Pacific Index; EMEA Index; Europe Index; Middle East and Africa Index; and Developed EMEA Index.

FTSE Group says the new structure of the index series better enables investors to measure listed real estate performance across all major geographies, country classifications and property types.

‘Globalization of Reits and public real estate will continue to grow, driven by the fact that investors worldwide are seeking diversification; but diversification can only be achieved when coverage includes both geographic and property type exposure,’ says FTSE’s head of alternatives Ronnee Ades.

Despite recent market turmoil and the devaluation of real estate stocks in concert with broad global equities markets, real estate remains widely recognized as one of the four primary core asset classes in institutional portfolios and represents nearly 50 per cent of global wealth.

Reits and other listed real estate offer investors greater liquidity, access, transparency, and professional management than private real estate investments, but their underlying assets share the same distinct characteristics, according to various studies by asset-allocation specialists Ibbotson Associates.

The FTSE Epra/Nareit Global Index Series represents the economic performance of global listed real estate.
