The Dow Jones U.S. Select REIT Index is a market capitalization-weighted index composed of publicly traded Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs). No special purpose or healthcare REITs are included. The Index is rebalanced monthly and reconstituted quarterly. The Index is unmanaged and can not be invested in directly.

Dow Jones U.S. Select REIT Index

The Dow Jones U.S. Select REIT IndexSM is comprised of companies whose charters are the equity ownership and operation of commercial real estate and which operate under the REIT Act of 1960.  Each REIT in the REIT Index is weighted by its float-adjusted market capitalization. That is, each security is weighted to reflect the attainable market performance of the security which reflects that portion of securities shares that are accessible to investors.

Important Risk Information

REIT funds may be subject to a high degree of market risk due to lack of industry diversification. REIT funds may be subject to other risks including, but not limited to, changes in real estate values or economic conditions, credit risk and interest rate fluctuations and changes in the value of the underlying property owned by the trust and defaults by borrowers.

These investments may have difficulty in liquidating an investment position without taking a significant discount from current market value, which can be a significant problem with certain lightly traded securities.

Non-diversified funds that focus on a relatively small number of stocks tend to be more volatile than diversified funds and the market as a whole.

Risk associated with equity investing include stock values which may fluctuate in response to the activities of individual companies and general market and economic conditions.
