Interest Rates, Not Inflation, Drive the Relative Performance of the REIT Sector

With the United States experiencing historically high inflation growth, many investors are wondering if real estate provides a natural hedge against inflation and if the REIT sector should therefore outperform the broader equity market. Many REITs in our coverage have reported rent and revenue growth at or near historic peaks over the past several quarters, with inflation being one of the largest reasons for the high growth. Given this and some historical evidence that REITs outperformed in the 1970s and early 1980s when inflation was similarly high, some investors are questioning why REITs have not outperformed in 2022.
