Nearly 40 million Americans invest in REITs

Podcast: REITs and Inflation

03/15/2013 | By Allen Kenney

Jacob Frydman, CEO of privately held real estate investment and advisory firm United Realty Partners, joins NAREIT editorial director Allen Kenney for a podcast to discuss the inflation-hedging benefits of commercial real estate in investment portfolios.

Frydman was asked about the Federal Reserve's quantitative easing program and the trickle-down effect on commercial real estate.

"I think it's critical that people consider the impact of what that inflation might look like tomorrow," he said. "We've been in a pretty nice 25-year period with limited inflation. My view is that we are going to have inflation."
