Our mission is to promote the inclusion of investments in direct commercial real estate and real estate securities within defined contribution plans in order to improve participant outcomes by furthering education about, advocacy for, and best practices of such investments.
DCREC is the only membership organization dedicated to advocating for the inclusion of direct commercial real estate and real estate securities as an alternative asset class in defined contribution plans to improve participant outcomes. With an advocacy group made up of more than 150 leaders. Collectively, their firms oversee approximately $1.5 trillion in investment assets.
DCREC provides a platform for industry collaboration, establishes best practices, and develops educational resources to advance the use of real estate in defined contribution plans.
Defined contribution plans are increasingly the foundation for the future financial security of millions of Americans. Research shows that real estate as an asset class helps provide better retirement outcomes for many individuals.
