New: Long-Run Investment Horizons and Implications for Mixed-Asset Portfolio Allocations
Date Posted: Sep  04, 2011
When different asset classes display varying degrees of serial correlation, the investment horizon may substantially alter optimized mixed-asset portfolio allocations. Private-market assets (such as commercial real estate and private equity) often display much higher levels of autocorrelation than their public-market counterparts. Consequently, the one-year returns typically used in mixed-asset portfolio optimization procedures often generate excessive allocations to private-market asset classes

Twenty Years of the NCREIF Property Index
Date Posted: Sep  08, 1998

It attempts to provide a solution for owners and managers of apartments to the thorny problem of setting a property's rental rate. The approach used in this analysis differs from previous studies in at least three important respects: (1) vacancy is treated as part of the dependent variable, (2) the property-specific rental rate generated by the regression analy
