FAQs on PGIM India Global Select Real Estate Securities Fund of Fund (FOF)

What is a Global Real Estate Fund of Fund and REITs?

  • Global Real Estate Fund of Fund are mutual fund schemes, which invest in a portfolio of real estate assets including listed REITs and other securities

  • REITs are Real Estate Investment Trust

  • REITs either own, operate, lease or finance real estate properties

  • REITs are structured like mutual funds, which pool money from various investors to invest in different properties

  • By leasing space and collecting rent on its real estate, the company generates income which is then paid out to shareholders in the form of dividends

  • Globally most REITs are listed and thus publicly trade like stocks

How does a real estate company qualify as REIT?

Different countries may have minor variation in requirements for a real estate company to qualify as a REIT. Example, to qualify as REIT in the U.S, a real estate company must:

  • Invest at least 75% of total assets in real estate assets and cash

  • Derive at least 75% of gross income from rents, interest on mortgages that finance real property, or real estate sales

  • Pay a minimum of 90% of taxable income in the form of shareholder dividends each year

  • Be an entity that's taxable as a corporation, but for its REIT status

  • Be managed by a board of directors or trustees

  • Have at least 100 shareholders after its first year of existence

  • Have no more than 50% of its shares held by five or fewer individuals

A company that qualifies as a REIT in the US, is allowed to deduct from its corporate taxable income all of the dividends that it pays out to its shareholders. Because of this special tax treatment, most REITs pay out at least 100 percent of their taxable income to their shareholders and, therefore, owe no corporate tax.

How is a Global Real Estate FoF different from both traditional equities or bonds as an asset class?

A Global Real Estate FoF invests into an underlying fund, which typically invests in REITs and other instruments, which can provide the following characteristics:

  • Has potential to generate higher income opportunities in form of rentals and higher dividend yield

  • Scope of capital appreciation opportunities over a full cycle

  • Traded like a stock. Provides instant liquidity but also makes it volatile

Why one should look at both homeownership and also investing in Global Real Estate FoFs that provide easy exposure to global REITs ?

For a retail investor, a residential house for personal consumption is not necessarily an investment, particularly when financed with a sizable mortgage. It does not produce current income, but rather requires regular mortgage interest, real estate tax, insurance payments and maintenance costs. However it does provide a sense of ownership and fulfils an emotional need for security. In contrast, investing in REITs via a Global Real Estate Feeder Fund, represents investment in varied real estate opportunities, which has the potential to generate continuing income flow from rents and capital appreciation over longer term.

Additionally, Global real estate FoF which invests in an underlying fund, provides liquidity at the fund level and the underlying portfolio is diversified across a range of real estate properties in a variety of geographic locations. By comparison, a house is a comparatively illiquid asset whose investment risk is not diversified, but rather highly concentrated.

What are the benefits of investing in Global Real Estate Feeder Fund v/s Physical Property?

Buying Physical Property Buying Global Real Estate FoF
Huge capital outlay Alternative way for retail investor to take exposure to Real Estate as an asset class in an affordable manner
Can invest in residential property mostly Can invest in Residential, Office space, Retailers, Hospitality, Warehouses, Data centres, Healthcare among others
