Using the terminology of a recession doesn’t work in this environment. We’re using old terms that we’re familiar with to describe something new and unfamiliar. This isn’t a recession, it’s a hiatus.
Markets are attractive on many parameters such as PE, market cap, GDP, etc. However, investors should brace for high volatility as a result of COVID-19.

Head of PGIM Investments
When we enter a recovery period, well-capitalized equity real estate funds will have an advantage over those with weak balance sheets. We see a number of potential opportunities across the housing sector, including suburban apartments and workforce housing; in infill industrial assets such as cold storage; and in necessity retail, particularly as grocery delivery continues to accelerate.
