As mentioned earlier, Manulife US REIT is a member of REITAS and its website also has a list of metrics for investors to consider, when investing in REITs.

This list “General considerations when investing in a REIT” can be found at https://www.reitas.sg/reit-basics/metrics-to-consider-when-investing-in-a-reit/ and here’s a summary:

Like any other publicly listed stock, individual investors may buy units in a REIT, which are listed on a stock exchange. It is also possible to get REIT exposure via REIT mutual funds or REIT exchange traded funds (ETFs).

REIT shares are priced by the market throughout the trading day on the exchanges they are listed on.

Below are some key metrics relating to REITs (in no particular order). The list is not exhaustive and readers should do their own research and due diligence before investing.

Quality and Track Record of Management, Portfolio & Financials

Aggregate Leverage (Gearing ) Level

Price to Net Asset Value (NAV)

Tenant Mix

Occupancy Rate

Weighted Average Lease Expiry (WALE)

Lease Expiry Profile

Debt Expiry Profile
