About listed real estate
Listed real estate, or property company equities, are real estate companies quoted on an official national stock exchange that derive income from the ownership, trading, and development of income producing real estate assets.
Listed real estate allows anyone, from retail investors to large institutional investors, to invest in the underlying assets of public quoted companies, the same way as investing in other industries through purchasing shares.
Owning shares of a listed public real estate company means earning a part of the income produced through the underlying bricks and mortar.
