The recent Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation has left the stock markets with significant declines and some of you may have also been affected by this and moved your money into cash as well as other asset classes. When stock markets decline in such economic environments, alternative investments such as Gold and Real Estate may be seen by many as a way to weather the instability in the market.
DMCC believes it offers that stability through its Managed Real Estate Funds and is uniquely placed to better weather the uncertainty compared to other asset classes. The portfolio was specifically architected to incorporate key features such as 70% medical real estate and a national tenant weighing in excess of 55%. The theory being the medical industry provides for a strong foundation in both bull and bear markets. In particular, the current global crisis is heavily relying on the medical space to maintain safety and good health which has placed an enormous burden on their workload and general demand for their services.
As a forward-thinking company in asset management, we are committed to planning for and advising our clients to preserve their hard-earned investments so they can protect what is important to them.
What does COVID19 mean for the global economy?
This pandemic will undoubtedly cause a significant economic downturn, particularly in equity markets while creating demand for time-proven and less volatile asset classes like real estate and gold. Medical real estate is especially poised to benefit from current market conditions, due to the fundamental demand for healthcare space, like hospitals and clinics, that the pandemic continues to fuel.
What does this mean for you?
Our investments are well-engineered to take advantage of this dynamic and well suited to weather current market decisions. DMCC’s investment philosophy success lies in the diverse mix of assets that are weighted 70% Medical and 30% Office and Retail. Our professionally managed securities are eligible for cash and registered accounts that make it a stable and less volatile choice for any saving goals particularly, regular cash dividends and most importantly for some, capital preservation, combined with a medium-term investment horizon.
What are we doing to help our clients and partners?
We are here for our clients during this age of uncertainty as we have been for the past 2 decades. To meet the exceedingly high demand from our existing clients for further Performance Fund units, we have just made available more units so our clients can relocate their cash holdings into stable, cash flow positive securities.
