DeA Global REITs fund is a hybrid investment of real estate and equities and the easiest and fastest way to invest in real estate.

REITs outperform other asset classes

The yield gap compared to other asset classes remains high.
The difference to the next best asset class, equities, is around 100 basis points.
The difference to the “safe haven” German 10-year bonds is more than 300 basis points.
REITs offer more than 4,5 per cent returns and therefore more than other liquid asset classes.
