The rising interest rate, the Selic, affects real estate funds in two main ways. The first is that high interest rates make financing more expensive and have a negative effect on the real estate market.
The second is that the higher Selic benefits more conservative fixed-income investments. And real estate funds, being more risky, are less attractive.
Even though the forecast is for a further increase in the interest rate, those who defend these funds say that prices have already fallen a lot and it could be a good opportunity to buy cheap.
On the other hand, there are also those who argue that some real estate funds, such as those that invest in fixed income securities, can be interesting.
Critics point out that high interest rates should maintain the bad scenario for these investments.
To debate whether real estate funds are worth it amidst the high interest rate scenario, “The Great Debate – Investimentos” this Monday (15th) receives Juliana Pedroza, Investor Relations Director at Habitat Capital Partners, who will defend the funds real estate, and Jason Vieira, chief economist at Infinity Asset, who prefers other types of investment now.
“The Great Debate – Investments” It will always have the presence of two specialists with opposing views to debate the pros and cons of the different investment options and solutions, as well as topics from the world of personal finance and the financial market.
The attraction is weekly and airs on Mondays at 9:20 pm.
