Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) are funds that invest in a portfolio of income generating real estate assets such as shopping malls, offices or hotels, usually with a view to generating income for unit holders of the fund (i.e. investors of the REITs).
Assets of REITs are professionally managed, and revenues generated from assets (primarily rental income) are normally distributed at regular intervals to investors. REITs allow investors to access real property assets and share the benefits and risks of owning a portfolio of properties.
Units of REITs are bought and sold like other securities listed on SGX at market driven prices.
