At close range and accurate to the millimeter, several gunshots of the caliber 7.62 x 51 mm (hard-scope-HC) have been fired at the vehicle at a speed of 820 m/s +- 10. The successful ballistic certification according to VPAM BRV yet again proves and demonstrates the high quality standards to which the WELP Group is committed to.

Asahi Kasei wins 2018 Altair Enlighten Award for Glass Fiber Reinforced Leona™ Polyamide 66 Pedal Bracket

Which Investment is better: Real Estate or Stocks?

In all likelihood, each one of us has already formed an opinion and an answer to this bold question. But of course, opinions are, almost always, neither the truth nor the hard facts. Since TERRA INTERNATIONAL REALTY has maintained a respectable position in the real estate industry, it is extremely necessary that every article involving statistical data and information are properly backed-up by respectable entities or institutions.

Based on an extensive study made by a team of economists from the University of California, the University of Bonn, and the German central bank, they came up with a stunning analysis from 145 years of economic data of leading authors who conducted the study (The Rate of Return on Everything, 1870-2015.). That research has reported a comparative study of returns on equities, residential real estate, short-term treasury bills and longer-term treasury bonds. The study included adjusted inflation rates, all returns, depreciation and appreciations, dividend income for equities and rental income for residential real estate.

In short, residential real estate had the best ROI at an average of 7%/annum, followed by Equities as the graph shows, then came bonds and bills with much lower returns.

Remember these are long-term averages and over many decades, there were some dramatic changes. By 1980-2015, equities performed better than real estate. Among the 16 countries studied, equities had an average annual return of 10.7% against real estate at 6.4%.

Does this mean we have to sell our real estate and buy stocks then? Of course not. First, only a few countries threw off the average returns from 1980-2015. Japan“s real estate markets collapsed due to its aging population. Germany has been in a slump for decades. Meanwhile, in Scandinavia, equities were on a rise. But, let us check the risk and volatility factor, which is a more interesting picture for an investor. And here is a quick look:

-Treasury bonds are low-risk, low -return and no one can challenge that truism
-Equities are high risk, high return. This is rather interesting since we saw how stock markets have performed for the last century. It“s up to 29% one year and down 18% the next year. This would erase the idea that equities are not risky and volatile type of investment.

That brings us back to the basic principles of economics that when the demand is low; prices go down as well. A higher demand will, naturally, bring prices up. But what if the demand was so great that it depletes the supply so fast. Therefore, the assumption is, if an asset is low-risk but high return, everybody will be going for it until it drains faster than flushing a toilet bowl. Luckily, that assumption doesn“t seem to be true for residential rental properties, which is low risk, high returns.

In recent years, residential real estate has maintained high returns with low risk, until the past ten years where real estate has become expensive. You just cannot invest $100 which you can do with buying stocks. Even if you can borrow or mortgage a property you still have to put up about 20% down plus some documentary costs and all that.

In other words, real estate investing has a stiffer requirement in terms of financing. It is also difficult to branch out to other investment scenario assuming that you need a $20,000 cash for every asset. Real estate is also illiquid, as you can“t buy it now and sell it tomorrow. It usually takes months to do either one. And that is also the reason why it is more stable than equities or stocks.

Those who did not like the look of real estate returns compared to stock returns for the past few decades should consider the Sharpe ratio which has grown stronger over time. Since 1950, this ratio had averaged an impressive .8%. It showed that the high bond yields of the 1980s were actually the problem itself, if you“ll look at bond returns over the past 145 years. There were more periods they earned negative returns. The following are a few reasons why rental properties are better investments than bonds:
-Bonds pay out for a specific period then stops paying. In other words, they expire.
-Rental properties keep paying indefinitely.
-Bonds become less valuable with their purchasing power due to inflation.
-Rental costs rise along with inflation.
-Fixed mortgage or borrowed money from banks goes down over time, until one day it“s all over while your rental cash flow keeps on multiplying.

TERRA INTERNATIONAL REALTY knows that this subject needs more space to really cover a big area left unexplored. Nonetheless, we feel that we were able to give would-be investors some significant insight about the difference between a real estate investment portfolio and buying stocks.

Founded in 1997 to provide independent brokerages with a powerful marketing and referral program for luxury listings, Terra International Realty network was designed to connect the finest independent Real Estate Companies to the most prestigious clientele in the world.

Asahi Kasei Corporation becomes official partner of the World Rally Championship

Asahi Kasei Corporation becomes official partner of the World Rally Championship

Asahi Kasei official partner of WRC (Source: @Asahi Kasei)

Düsseldorf, August 31, 2018 – Asahi Kasei has signed a contract as official partner with the organiser of the FIA World Rally Championship. In this world-leading rally series, drivers and vehicles compete against each other under the toughest and most diverse conditions. The Federation Internationale de L’Automobile (FIA) has organised the World Rally Championship (WRC) in this form since 1973.

The partnership with the WRC will increase awareness of the corporate brand Asahi Kasei in Europe, where rally competitions have been held for almost 100 years. At the same time, the commitment as official partner supports the efforts of the automotive industry to improve vehicle performance through motorsport competitions under the toughest conditions. It consists of 13 events across 15 countries and five continents. The winner of each rally is the team that completes all the high-speed competitive special stages in the shortest total time. Drivers and co-drivers compete under extremely tough and varied conditions in dramatic surroundings, ranging from the ice and snow of a Scandinavian winter to the stifling heat of high summer in Sardinia.

Last year WRC was broadcast on television for a total of more than 13,000 hours in 155 markets, with a cumulative audience of 850 million people. WRC also has a huge digital profile, with more than 1.6 billion online engagements in 2017.

Asahi Kasei joins as official partner of WRC starting with „Rallye Deutschland 2018“ (August 16-19) in the Saarbrucken area (service park at Bostalsee) with a distance of around 1,200 kilometers and more than 200,000 viewers in 2017, viewed as the most difficult of the end-of-season asphalt encounters. The main challenges for the „Wales Rally GB“ (October 4-7) taking place in north Wales and Cheshire (service park in Deeside) with a total distance of around 1,400 kilometres, are treacherous and muddy conditions and unpredictable weather with rain, ice and fog.

At 1,400 race kilometres during the ‚Rallye de Espaoa‘ (October 25-29) in Catalonia (Tarragona province, Salou service park), the drivers face the challenge of two days driving on asphalt and one day mainly on gravel.

Its partnership with WRC will enable Asahi Kasei to enhance corporate brand recognition in Europe where there is a rich heritage of rally competition, while supporting the automotive industry“s effort to improve vehicle performance through motorsport competition under the most severe conditions.

Asahi Kasei is globally expanding its automotive-related business which includes engineering plastics for vehicle weight reduction, microfiber suede for seats with superior comfort, and sensors and communication systems utilizing audio and speech processing technology, CO2 – and alcohol sensors.
