Strategy, Benefits, Results

Strategy

  • We invest mainly in REITs and similar REIT-like entities around the world.
  • The securities of REITs (real estate companies that purchase and usually manage properties such as office buildings, malls, apartments and hotels) are traded like stocks, which make them more liquid than individual properties.
  • We combine top-down macro analysis with bottom-up research of individual stocks to locate investment opportunities.

Benefits

  • Experienced Management. Our real estate team has been investing in global real estate for more than 25 years.
  • Portfolio Diversification. Historically, real estate securities have had a relatively low correlation to both stocks and bonds, offering potential diversification benefits.
  • Global Opportunity. As countries around the world continue to adopt the REIT structure, more securities holding high-quality commercial real estate will likely begin to trade on the world's stock exchanges.

Investing in the Fund

What Are the Risks?
  • All investments involve risks, including possible loss of principal.
  • The fund concentrates in real estate securities which involve special risks, such as declines in the value of real estate and increased susceptibility to adverse economic or regulatory developments affecting the sector.
  • The fund’s investments in REITs involves additional risks; since REITs typically are invested in a limited number of projects or in a particular market segment, they are more susceptible to adverse developments affecting a single project or market segment than more broadly diversified investments.
  • Foreign investing, especially in emerging markets, involves additional risks such as currency and market volatility, as well as political and social instability.
  • Also, the fund is a “non-diversified” fund, and investing in a non-diversified fund involves the risk of greater price fluctuation than a more diversified portfolio.
  • These and other risks are described more fully in the fund’s prospectus.
