REITs (real estate investment trusts) are quite popular among investors in the developed markets. Indian investors, on the other hand, have been introduced only recently to the concept of REITs. So, the market here is still nascent.
But there have been two recent developments in favour of REITs.
First was the move to reduce the trading lot size to one from 200 or more earlier. This has suddenly made REITs more affordable for smaller investors. This move will not only increase the trading volumes and liquidity, but also lead to better price discovery for REITs in the long run.
