Question 5 Explanation: 

REITs are similar to mutual funds. While mutual funds provide for an opportunity to invest in equity stocks, REITs allow one to invest in income-generating real estate assets.

They are collective investment vehicles that operate and manage property portfolios and give returns to investors. Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) mandated that all REITS be listed on exchanges and make an initial public offer to raise money.

REITs can reduce the risk related to your property investments as 80 per cent of the value of the REIT should be in completed and rent-generating assets. They are required to be run by professional managements with specified years of experience notified by SEBI.

A REIT can be launched as an initial public offer (IPO). An investor can apply for investment in the REIT through his demat account, either online or by filling up the IPO form and indicating demat account details. After the issue is closed, the REIT will allot units to eligible investors.
