Introducing REITs and InvITs on Paytm Money2 min read
As investors, we have wondered multiple times: How can I explore investing outside of equity, stocks and derivatives? How can I diversify my portfolio by putting money in other tradable instruments?
And here is some good news for all such people who want to create a diversified portfolio – REITs and InvITs. You can now invest in listed REITs and InvITs via the Paytm Money apps and web platforms.
What are REITs and InvITs?
REITs, or Real Estate Investment Trusts, are companies that own or finance income-producing real estate across a range of property sectors. REITs historically have delivered competitive total returns, based on high, steady dividend income and long-term capital appreciation.
Their comparatively low correlation with other assets also makes them an excellent portfolio diversifier that can help reduce overall portfolio risk and increase returns. Although the overall volume of REITs traded on exchanges is low, people willing to have them in their portfolio can definitely take part in the secondary market.
InvITs, or Infrastructure Investment Trusts are investment instruments that work like mutual funds. Their units are listed on the stock exchanges and are a wholesome combination of both equity and debt instruments. When compared to REITs, the structure and operation of both are quite similar.
Both REITs and InvITs are regulated by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI).
