Cohen & Steers Diversified Real Assets

This month’s fund in focus is Cohen & Steers Diversified Real Assets.

The fund’s overall objective is to achieve a positive total return over the long term and to maximize real returns during inflationary environments. It offers investors a core, diversified and liquid real asset (infrastructure, real estate, natural resources etc.) allocation solution that delivers the key attributes of a range of asset classes, including attractive total returns across a full market or economic cycle, diversification away from broad stock and bond markets and real returns during periods of inflation.

A few points to note:

  • Despite the Fund being diversified, with approximately 265 holdings, it has just a 2% average portfolio overlap with the 10 largest active funds in the U.K.
  • Real assets have a high positive inflation sensitivity to help protect against potentially damaging effects of accelerating inflation on a stock/bond portfolio
  • The fund has consistently performed better than the benchmark over the last 3 years and has performed particularly strongly against a backdrop of falling markets in 2022.
