Real estate securities (REITs) provide public real estate investment strategies to institutional and individual investment clients.
REITs own, manage, and develop property. A REITs allocation provides portfolios exposure to the investment performance of commercial real estate. Like real estate, REITs offer investors an interesting blend of bond and equity characteristics. While real estate and REITs generate a bond-like income return, they can also deliver equity-like appreciation, driven by cash flow growth at the property level.
RISKS: Real estate and infrastructure investing may be subject to a higher degree of market risk because of concentration in a specific industry, sector or geographical sector. Real estate and infrastructure investing may be subject to risks including, but not limited to, declines in the value of real estate, risks related to general and economic conditions, changes in the value of the underlying property owned by the trust and defaults by borrower.
