As an investor in the Philippines, you might have heard about REITs or Real Estate Investment Trusts. REITs are a type of investment that allows you to own a share of a real estate portfolio without owning the actual property. This type of investment has gained popularity in recent years due to its potential for high returns and its ability to generate passive income. That’s right, and they pay quarterly too. By law, REITs are required to pay out at least 90% of their income back to their shareholders.
In this article, I’ll discuss my top picks of REITs in the Philippines that I’m currently holding.
REITs in the Philippines
Ayala Land REIT (AREIT)
Ayala Land REIT or AREIT is the first REIT to be listed on the Philippine Stock Exchange. AREIT’s portfolio includes high-quality commercial properties, such as Ayala Malls, Ayala North Exchange, and Ayala Tower One. AREIT offers investors a steady stream of income through dividends and has a track record of increasing dividends annually.
DDMP REIT (DDMPR)
DoubleDragon REIT or DDMPR is a real estate investment trust that aims to provide investors with a steady stream of income from its rental properties, which are mainly commercial and office spaces. DDMPR is managed by DoubleDragon Properties Corp. and has a diversified portfolio of properties across the Philippines, including the DD Meridian Park in Pasay City, which is the largest leasable office facility in the country. DDMPR offers a potential source of passive income for investors who want to benefit from the growth of the Philippine real estate market.
RL Commercial REIT (RCR)
RL Commercial REIT or RCR is a real estate investment trust that focuses on commercial properties such as office buildings, retail centers, and other income-generating properties in the Philippines. It was launched in November 2020 and is managed by Robinsons Land Corporation, one of the leading real estate companies in the country. RCR aims to provide investors with stable and recurring income from its diversified portfolio of properties, which are strategically located in key business districts and other prime locations in the Philippines.
Megaworld REIT (MREIT)
Megaworld REIT or MREIT is a real estate investment trust that owns and operates income-generating properties in the Philippines. It is part of the Megaworld Corporation, one of the country’s largest property developers. MREIT’s portfolio includes office buildings, commercial centers, and hotels, mainly located in Metro Manila and other major cities. The company aims to provide its investors with regular income streams through stable dividends and long-term capital appreciation.
Citicore Energy REIT
Citicore Energy REIT or CREIT is a Philippine-based real estate investment trust that focuses on clean energy assets such as solar power plants and wind farms. CREIT’s portfolio includes several renewable energy projects across the country, making it one of the pioneering REITs in the Philippines with a focus on sustainable energy sources. CREIT provides investors with an opportunity to participate in the growing demand for renewable energy while enjoying potential returns from their investment.
REITs in the Philippines offer investors a great opportunity to invest in real estate without having to own the actual property. Each REIT has its own unique portfolio, dividend yield, and potential for growth. As always, it’s important to do your own research and consult with a financial advisor before making any investment decisions. By investing in REITs, you can potentially earn passive income and diversify your investment portfolio.
