Overview of Fidelity® MSCI Real Estate Index ETF offerings
Exposure to MSCI US REIT Index: FREL tracks the MSCI US REIT Index. This index includes Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) that are listed on U.S. stock exchanges. REITs are companies that own, operate, or finance income-producing real estate properties.
Diversification Across Real Estate Sectors: The underlying index might include REITs specializing in various property types, such as residential, commercial (office, retail, industrial), and healthcare facilities. This diversification offers exposure to different segments of the real estate market.
Passive Management: The ETF passively tracks the underlying index. It doesn't attempt to actively select or outperform individual REITs based on predictions or market timing. This typically results in lower fees compared to actively managed real estate funds.
Potential for Dividend Income: Many REITs distribute a portion of their taxable income to shareholders as dividends. FREL offers the potential to receive regular income streams through these dividend payouts.
Potential for Capital Appreciation: Over the long term, the value of real estate and REIT share prices can potentially increase. FREL offers the potential to benefit from this capital appreciation.
Exchange-Traded: Shares of FREL trade on a stock exchange like any other stock, offering high liquidity. Investors can easily buy and sell shares throughout the trading day for flexible portfolio management.
