Cohen & Steers Diversified Real Assets Fund Celebrates Five-Year Anniversary

LONDON, June 8, 2023—Cohen & Steers, Inc. (NYSE: CNS) celebrates the five-year anniversary of the Cohen & Steers SICAV Diversified Real Assets Fund (“the Fund”).  The Fund provides a liquid allocation to a blend of real assets that mitigates risk through strategic diversification while complementing traditional equity and fixed income investments.

The Fund is designed to provide investors with attractive long-term total returns while maximizing real returns during inflationary environments. With allocations to a dynamic blend of real assets, including real estate, infrastructure, natural resource equities and commodities, the Fund offers a turnkey solution for investors looking for attractive long-term returns, especially during periods of inflation.

Vince Childers, Head of Real Assets Multi-Strategy and Portfolio Manager, said:

“Institutional investors and financial advisors alike are increasingly seeking comprehensive alternative investment solutions that mitigate inflation risk while offering liquidity and diversification. As we enter a new macroeconomic regime characterized by slowing growth and deglobalisation, the risk of experiencing unexpected bouts of inflationary shocks over the next decade has increased, highlighting the value of a blended real assets allocation in portfolios.”

The Fund is recognised as an RSMR Rated Fund and is Elite Rated by Fund Calibre. The Fund ranks in the top quartile among its Morningstar Aggressive Allocation category peers for the three- and five-year periods ended 31 May 2023.
