By: Catherine Yoshimoto, Senior Index Product Manager

Real estate investments can offer a relatively predictable income stream derived from rents that are also frequently inflation-linked, which can translate to long-term real returns. For real estate investors setting their sights solely on real estate investment trusts (REITs) in the Asia ex Japan region, a single security can comprise a significant portion of a traditional market cap weighted index. The FTSE EPRA/NAREIT Asia ex Japan REITs 10% Capped Index addresses this issue in its methodology, resulting in a more balanced, diversified index.
