Glenn Mueller, University of Denver professor and real estate investment strategist at Dividend Capital Group, joined REIT.com for a video interview during REITWeek 2014: NAREIT’s Investor Forum, held in New York.
Mueller was asked whether he still considers REITs to be low-volatility investments.
“They are much less volatile than the overall marketplace,” Mueller said.
He explained that REITs have historically been low-volatility investments. That changed temporarily during the financial crisis as a result of exchange-traded funds (ETFs), according to Mueller.
