Property vs Equities (and Bonds)

Special Report Podcast: Paul Stewart – MD, Plexus Asset Management - Boardroom Talk with Alec Hogg

It is interesting that Moneyweb have chosen to go with the sub-heading "We are closer to the period of time when property perhaps underperforms for a period of time".

This heading is a little misleading as to the contents of the Podcast. If you look at the transcript, it is clear that historically property has outperformed equities and bonds and tends to rise with a rise in either of these sectors, thereby "enjoying the best of both worlds".

The question is therefore posed as to whether such performance is sustainable. I say - History repeats itself and therfore Property should be an important part of any long-term strategy.
