|Abstract:||This paper examines the inflation hedging abilities of Swiss indirect real estate investments. It considers only investment solutions that are suitable and appropriate for individual investors and therefore offers insights into how real estate protects private investors against inflation. We apply a modified version of the Fama and Schwert approach to explore the hedging abilities. The study concludes that indirect real estate investments in portfolios of individual investors in Switzerland do not provide inflation hedging abilities as it already was suggested by previous research. The results could be affected due to the abnormal market conditions during the sample period.|
