Overview of iShares Core U.S. REIT ETF offerings
Exposure to U.S. Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs): USRT primarily invests in a basket of US-listed REITs. REITs are companies that own, operate, or finance income-producing real estate. By investing in USRT, you gain exposure to the U.S. real estate market without directly buying individual properties.
Potential for Dividend Income: REITs are required by law to distribute a significant portion of their taxable income to shareholders as dividends. USRT aims to generate income for investors through these dividend distributions from the underlying REITs it holds.
Diversification: USRT holds a variety of REITs across different property sectors, such as residential, commercial, and healthcare. This diversification can help spread out risk and potentially reduce volatility compared to investing in individual REITs.
Passive Management: USRT tracks a broad market index of U.S. REITs, meaning it doesn't attempt to actively select or outperform individual companies. This typically results in lower fees compared to actively managed funds.
Exchange-Traded: Shares of USRT are traded on a stock exchange like any other stock, allowing for easy buying and selling throughout the trading day. This provides flexibility for investors managing their portfolios.
Transparency: The holdings of the ETF are publicly disclosed, allowing investors to understand the specific REITs they are indirectly invested in through USRT.
