REIT Investment in India

Real estate investment trust or REIT is an entity which pools in resources from various investors and then collectively invests in real estate to earn capital appreciation and dividends.

REITs allow you to invest smaller amount of your savings into real estate which otherwise would not have been possible.

All this is done in a hassle free and convenient way without you getting involved in the long process of owning a property.

Simply put, REITs are to real estate what mutual funds are to equity markets. They're publicly traded like common stocks on the stock exchanges.

In a market scenario when inflation in at peak (stock markets don't like high inflation), a REIT investment proves to be an efficient one.

When it gets increasingly difficult for an investor to find out a high-yielding asset class to invest in, REITs come in and inflation proof your portfolio.

REITs are catching up big time which is proving to be good for the real estate sector.

At present, there are only a couple of listed REITs in India. Going forward, we may see more REITs launched in India. This will increase your options towards REIT investment.

While making a REIT investment, invest only in REITs with 'A' grade office space and which boast of quality assets.
