Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT)

Why Choose REITs?

REITs is an instrument for collection of investments providing investors the opportunity to invest in real estate assets such as hotels, offices, malls, plazas, with a purpose to produce income for unit holders. REITs portfolio is professionally managed and capital is generated from assets. The major reasons why one should choose REITs are:

  • REITs provide investors with small capital base the opportunity to invest in Real Estate.
  • In periods of robust economic activity, an increase in the value of Real estate is reflected in REIT stocks that appreciate considerably.
  • Being a flow through entity, REITs are tax exempt on distribution of ninety percent profits. This prevents double taxation as income derived from REITs is taxed only at the individual level.
