Investors continue to struggle to find sources of return in a world of low interest rates, sluggish economic growth and looming inflation. And while the election of Donald Trump as the next U.S. president eliminated one uncertainty, it created others. In such an environment, real assets can offer opportunity. But investors have to know where to look, what to be careful of and how to invest. Tony Charles, global head of research and strategy for Morgan Stanley Real Estate Investing, Jim Clark, senior vice president and client portfolio manager at Nuveen Asset Management, and George Milling-Stanley, head of gold strategy at State Street Global Advisors, provide insight into why and how real assets can be a reliable investment choice today.
