Real estate trusts 

A real estate investment trust (REIT) generates cash flow through rent and leasing activities from properties the REIT owns and/or operates. They strive to provide investors with consistent, relatively high income as well as a way to diversify into real estate assets without owning physical property. REITs have low investment minimums and are more liquid than traditional real estate investments, they trade like stocks on an exchange. REITs are also viewed as an uncorrelated asset to stocks and bonds.
