Some alternative investments have the potential to produce higher returns than traditional assets, but they can also be much less liquid than traditional publicly traded stocks and bonds. One alternative asset that many investors are now considering adding to their portfolios is real estate. To learn more about real estate investing in the context of a broader portfolio, U.S. News & World Report recently spoke with Delegate Advisors Director of Portfolio Management Dunkin Allison.

To help manage these new industry challenges and changes, it is important for real estate investors to monitor demographic trends when considering potential opportunities.
