HVB offers open-end index certificate tracking FTSE EPRA/NAREIT Germany Net Total Return Index

HypoVereinsbank (HVB) is offering access to the German real estate market with its open-end index certificate tracking the FTSE EPRA/NAREIT Germany Net Total Return Index. The index is based on the shares of the largest publicly traded German real estate companies. The new certificate permits broad diversification and the prospect of participating in the first German REITs (real estate investment trusts).

One of the provisions of the German REIT law requires at least 90% of profits to be distributed to shareholders as dividends. Real estate offers weak correlation with equities and bonds as well as low volatility, says HVB’s Birgit Lutzenberger.

In contrast to a conventional real estate investment, exchange-traded real estate companies offer the advantages of tradability and liquidity.
