What is a real estate investment trust?

A real estate investment trust (REIT) is a company that operates in a way similar to a mutual fund. Investors pool their funds into a real estate portfolio managed by the REIT and generate returns without needing to purchase or maintain the properties themselves.

However, REITs can frequently be illiquid and therefore unsuitable for many investors.
