PIMCO recently announced the launch of the PIMCO Flexible Real Estate Income Fund (REFLX). The fund is the firm’s first real-estate-focused interval fund that will invest in public and private markets and will seek to harness the expertise and resources of its $190 billion commercial real estate (CRE) platform. REFLX will have the flexibility to invest in four distinct quadrants of the commercial real estate markets: private equity by acquiring stabilized income-oriented CRE, private real estate loans, public debt such as commercial mortgage-backed securities, and public equity such as REITs. Dan Ivascyn, PIMCO Managing Director and Group Investment Officer and head of the team managing the fund stated, “Higher yields and lower valuations in both public and private markets make for an attractive environment for patient investors ready to deploy funds in a flexible vehicle that can allocate investments across commercial real estate.” Similar to a mutual fund, interval funds are continuously offered. Investors can sell their shares back to the fund, but unlike a mutual fund, they may only be able to do so quarterly through the fund’s periodic repurchase offers.

Finsum:PIMCO adds to its stable of interval funds with the launch of the commercial real estate-focused Flexible Real Estate Income Fund.

Based on research by S&P Global Market Intelligence, more than half of U.S. equity REITs reported third-quarter funds from operations (FFO) that exceeded sell-side analyst expectations. S&P analyzed 127 U.S. REITs and found that 71 reported FFO per share higher than third-quarter consensus estimates. Out of the remaining REITs, 24 equaled consensus expectations for the quarter and 32 fell short of FFO expectations. The research covered U.S. equity REITs that trade on the Nasdaq, NYSE, and NYSE American, have market caps over $200 million, and have had three or more FFO-per-share estimates for the three months ending on September 30th. The top industries that outperformed were industrials and self-storage, with 9 out of the 11 industrial REITs surpassing analyst FFO-per-share estimates during the quarter. One notable self-storage REIT was Americold Realty Trust Inc., which reported a core FFO of 25 cents per share, 31.6% above its consensus estimate. Out of all the industries, the largest beat was Safehold Inc., which more than doubled its estimate of 42 cents per share.

Finsum:REITs had a strong quarter with 56% reporting third-quarter funds from operations that outperformed sell-side analyst expectations.
