Why invest in a publicly traded real estate investment trust (REIT)?

Publicly traded REITs are owned by a variety of investors, including individuals, pension funds, endowment funds, insurance companies, bank trust departments and mutual funds. Publicly traded REITs historically offer investors income and long-term growth opportunities. REITs provide competitive long-term rates of return that complement the returns from other stocks and bonds.

  • High Dividend Yield – Significantly higher on average than other equities, the industry’s dividend yields historically have produced a steady stream of income through a variety of market conditions.
  • Liquidity – Shares of publicly traded REITs are readily converted into cash because they are traded on the major stock exchanges.
  • Oversight – Independent directors of the REIT, independent analysts, independent auditors, and the business and financial media monitor a publicly traded REIT’s financial reporting on a regular basis. This scrutiny provides investors with a measure of protection and more than one barometer of the REIT’s financial condition.
  • Transparency – REITs whose securities are registered with the SEC are required to make regular disclosures, including quarterly and yearly financial reports.
