NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- Institutional Investor Journals has released The Journal of Portfolio Management Special Real Estate Issue, a unique collection of articles devoted to real estate. Real estate has become more accepted as a basic building block of a well-diversified institutional portfolio over the past decade.

- Optimal allocations under different situations and in light of new trends
