Alex Short of AEW UK Long Lease REIT tells Proactive it's a long lease strategy - a distinct move away from the ordinary commercial real estate sectors.

''We think [alternative commercial property] is relatively under-invested ... you see most institutional portfolios will have about 90% of their holdings in the traditional sectors whereas we think the alternative property sector is roughly the same size as the traditional market''.
