BVTV: the REIT stuff – a bond investor’s guide to Real Estate Investment Trusts
Today I am joined in the studio by M&G credit analyst Othman El Iraki and we will be taking a closer look at an area of the fixed income market that has been generating a lot of interest in recent months – Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs). Othman will talk through some of the characteristics of this asset class and explain what’s been driving the recent surge in new bond issuance, especially in the UK. Also this week – we look ahead to Thursday’s eagerly awaited ECB monetary policy meeting where bond investors are hoping to get more details on the bank’s QE exit strategy. Tune in to find out more.
The value of investments will fluctuate, which will cause prices to fall as well as rise and you may not get back the original amount you invested. Past performance is not a guide to future performance.
