As more cases of the coronavirus COVID-19 have been reported around the world, global markets have experienced more volatility than usual. We understand dramatic shifts like this can feel unnerving, but it’s important not to make any rash decisions about your investment strategy.

At Touzi Capital, we believe in investing for the long term, which is why we encourage you not to make any moves when the market swings up or when it comes back down.

As the stock market continues to decline and uncertainty builds around the current economic condition, investors are flooding to the low-risk government bond market causing US Treasuries to hit historic lows.

How does this affect your real estate portfolio? These market conditions present a rare opportunity to lock in historically low long-term fixed rates which ultimately means higher returns and a hedge against a rising interest rate environment.
