The new fund offer, which opened today, will close on October 12. The scheme is suitable for investors who are looking to diversify their portfolio and build exposure to real estate markets internationally.

Real estate investment trusts (REITs) may be one of the key beneficiaries amid the global search-for-yield, with potential recovery on the back of roll-out of Covid-19 vaccines and reopening of economies.

It aims to achieve stable income and capital appreciation and is expected to allocate between 70 to 100 per cent to REITs, and the rest in real estate and property management stocks (non-REITs) and cash/cash equivalents.
