Purchase information

Mar 15, 8:00PM EDT Overall Morningstar RatingTM


The investment seeks to provide a high level of income and moderate long-term capital appreciation by tracking the performance of the MSCI US Investable Market Real Estate 25/50 Transition Index that measures the performance of publicly traded equity REITs and other real estate-related investments. The advisor attempts to replicate the index by investing all, or substantially all, of its assets-either directly or indirectly through a wholly owned subsidiary, which is itself a registered investment company-in the stocks that make up the index, holding each stock in approximately the same proportion as its weighting in the index. The fund is non-diversified.
