Research objectives (a) To investigate the effects and diversification benefits of incorporating residential properties in a mixed asset portfolio; (b) To determine which property types and locations contribute more towards the improvement of the overall portfolio performance; (c) To determine the optimal allocations of residential properties in an investment portfolio.
5 3. Literature Review Hoesli and Hamelink (1997): investigate the residential property diversification benefits to mixed asset portfolios during the period between , in two Swiss housing markets (Geneva and Zurich). The study confirm earlier studies that housing assets are effective portfolio diversifiers for multi-asset portfolios Furthermore, they also find that an investor who holds residential properties in one Swiss housing market would also gain benefits from investing in another Swiss housing
6 Tan and Ting (2004) examined the effects and diversification benefits of incorporating Malaysian residential property in a personal investment portfolio, which consist of shares and bonds over the 1989 – 2001 periods. Findings: An allocation of 50% to 65% to Malaysian residential property, mostly in terraced house, in any of the five main regions of Malaysia, and the remainder invested in bonds and shares will create a more superior personal investment portfolio, both in terms of higher risk-adjusted return and extensive reduction in overall risks. These findings clearly demonstrate the significance of diversification gain when residential properties and financial assets are invested as a portfolio.
