Portfolio Manager Says Top-Tier Malls “Thriving”

Scott Craig, vice president and portfolio manager at Eaton Vance Management, joined REIT.com for a video interview at REITWeek 2016: NAREIT’s Investor Forum at the Waldorf Astoria New York.

Craig shared his views on interest rate movements and their likely impact on REIT stocks. He stressed that real estate is a long-duration asset class.

“The forward yield curve today implies that five years from now, the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate will be less than 2.5 percent. That’s a very supportive environment for real estate,” he said.
