Portfolio Fund Detail

Willis Owen Research Commentary

This fund tracks the FTSE EPRA/NAREIT Developed Dividend+ Index which provides a market cap-weighted exposure to global REITs and listed real estate companies that have been screened by their one-year forecast dividend yield. The constituents must have a forecast dividend yield of at least 2%, which arguably represents a low hurdle for the asset class. This fund has significant exposure to the United States. With an ongoing charge of just 0.20%, the fund is among the cheapest in the sector. The fund has a short track record but it is worth noting that the fund’s tracking difference (fund return less index return) has been less than its ongoing charge, a fact that can partly be explained by the differences in tax treatment between the fund and the index.
