What is long lease real estate?

Investment in long lease real estate offers investors fixed income-like cashflows derived from long-term contractual rental payments. It also retains the security and capital growth potential from owning the underlying real estate.

The asset class of long lease real estate can therefore be viewed as a hybrid of fixed income and real estate.

Why invest in long lease real estate?

Long lease real estate investment provides long-dated, inflation-linked cashflows that are underpinned by owning real assets. Investors therefore benefit from:

  • secured fixed income-like cashflows
  • the potential for capital value growth over the long term

Is long lease real estate a growth or matching asset class?

In our view it has elements of both. Long lease real estate has the potential for closing funding gaps, whilst matching liabilities.

Long lease real estate can also offer good relative value versus all of its closest comparators: traditional real estate, corporate bonds and index-linked gilts.
