INFOGRAPHIC: The future of  Philippine REITs
FILREIT is the latest to be listed with the PSE starting August 12, 2021

There are a few rules in investing everyone has to follow: don’t invest unless you have proper savings and an emergency fund, invest only disposable income and not money you rely on, always do your research, and never put all your eggs in one basket – that is to say, keep your investments diversified.

Diversification is important because you don’t want your entire portfolio to be affected by one investment’s poor performance. One asset class that many look into but only a few can afford is real estate, which is why Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) have become an attractive instrument abroad.

And after almost a decade of waiting for REITs to finally launch in the Philippines, companies are now slowly getting into the game and offering this earning opportunity to the investing public, Filinvest REIT Corp. (FILREIT) being the latest company to be listed with the Philippine Stock Exchange on August 12, 2021.

In this infographic, we take a look at why REITs make a formidable entryway to get into real estate investing without the conventional risks of buying a piece of property yourself. We also explore one of the newest REITs to enter the market.

These are but some of the basic information you need to know about this new investment instrument in the Philippines. Always remember that there is no such thing as a risk-free investment, so do your own research before buying REIT shares.
