What is a REIT? 

A real estate investment trust (REIT) allows investors to generate returns from a real estate portfolio without taking on the cost and responsibility of managing the properties. REITs tend to be illiquid, making them unsuitable for many investors.

Unsuitable Investments 

FINRA Rule 2111 defines suitable investments as securities that fit an investor’s profile. Investor profiles have information on the investor’s age, risk tolerance, tax status, investing experience, and financial goals. Investments that do not take these factors into account may be unsuitable
