A real estate investment trust (REIT) is a company that owns, operates, or finances 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). It is created when a corporation or trust invests in real estate and real estate-related investments, using investors’ money.
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.
