What is a REIT?
REITs or real estate investment trusts are companies that own or operate income-producing real estate, such as retail buildings, warehouses, apartments, data centres, infrastructure or hotels. A REIT can focus on one type of real estate property or cover a mix of properties in their portfolio.
This type of investment asset can provide retail investors with a great way to diversify their portfolios and invest in residential or commercial real estate without the hassle of buying and managing the properties themselves.
