Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) Fund
A Real Estate Investment Trust uses the pooled capital of many investors to purchase and manage income property and mortgage loans. They generate returns through revenue from leases, mortgages, and selling properties that have appreciated in value. REITs are traded on major exchanges, like stocks, but receive favorable tax treatment and offer attractive dividend payouts.
