Investing by theme: Real estate trusts
Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) generate cash flow through rent and leasing activities. They strive to provide investors with consistent, relatively high dividends as well as a way to diversify into real estate assets without owning physical property. The funds shown here buy shares in REITs, which may own properties such as warehouses, apartment complexes, office buildings, and hotels.
