REITS: Dividends & Diversification

The primary objectives of REITS are to provide investors with diversification into a different asset class, current income, and the opportunity to own large commercial real estate properties you might not typically be able to afford on your own.
The potential benefits of REITS include:

  • Wide Range of High-quality Properties
  • High-quality Tenants
  • Varying Lease Terms
  • Diversification - Just as a personal investment portfolio should be diversified to work toward reducing risk, REIT portfolios seek to achieve diversification through
    • The number of tenants who lease properties
    • The number of industries represented by tenants
    • The length of lease terms signed by tenants
    • The geographic locations of properties throughout the United States
    • There is no guarantee that a diversified portfolio will enhance overall returns or outperform a non-deversified portfolio. Diversification does not protect against market risk.

*Are REITs for Me?

REITS could be appealing investments for investors seeking

  • Attractive Current Income
  • Capital Preservation/Appreciation
  • Tax Efficient Income
  • Diversification
  • Safety From Stock Market

Investing in Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) involves special risks such as potential illiquidity and may not be suitable for all investors. There is no assurance that the investment objectives of this program will be attained.
