Description

Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) are becoming increasingly popular investments for individuals and institutions. They can provide a reliable and stable income with above-average dividend yields. REITs are still in their infancy in the UK, unlike the US, where REITs have been traded on the exchange for decades. Invest for dividends with UK REITs is a comprehensive and distinguished guide to understanding this asset class and the attraction of this investment. The course is a must for any small investor who is new to investing in REITs in the UK and understanding the investment opportunities.

Since the credit crunch ended, now is an excellent time to consider REITs as an investment for both substantial returns and diversification. The course covers:

· The history of REITs dating back to their development in the US

· Understand what a REIT is and what it can do for you as an investment

· How to know whether a REIT is run well and achieving excellent performance

· Know what tools to use to value a REIT and measure performance

· How to build a diversified portfolio with different commercial markets

· Understand the risk of REIT investments

· How to invest in REITs, directly or using mutual funds

· The future of UK REIT markets

Course tutor Anthony Dixon has built his experience in property investment in the private rented sector. Over the past five years, he has turned to UK REITs to invest in commercial property that he thought would never be possible due to lack of experience and money. Study this introductory course and choose REITs in the UK as a stable investment in commercial real estate.

Who this course is for:
  • Small investors interested in UK commercial property investment
  • Students can be based anywhere in the world
