Hoya Capital Launches High Yield REIT ETF

Sep 22, 2021

Hoya Capital Launches High Yield REIT ETF   Share: Hoya Capital Real Estate is launching a brand new high-yield real estate investment trust ETF. The Hoya Capital High Dividend Yield ETF (NYSE: RIET) began trading Wednesday and provides investors with diversified exposure to roughly 100 of the highest yielding REITs in the market. The Numbers: The RIET ETF currently has a dividend yield of 6.7% and distributions are paid monthly. The new ETF comes after Hoya launched the Hoya Capital Housing ETF (NYSE: HOMZ ) in 2019, which has now grown to more than $80 million in assets under management. “RIET exclusively targets the income side of the real estate sector , making it the perfect complement to HOMZ, which seeks to invest in some of the fastest-growing real estate securities,” Hoya Capital Director of Research Alex Pettee said in a statement. Pettee takes a diversified approach to its allocation. Mid-cap REITs and small-cap REITS each have a 30% weighting in the index. “Dividend champions” and large-cap REITs each have a 15% weighting in the fund. The remaining 10% is preferred stock. To reward early investors, Hoya is also waving fees through at least September 2022, bringing the fund’s net expense ratio down from 0.5% to 0.25%. How It Compares: Initial index holdings include Invesco Mortgage Capital Inc (NYSE: IVR ), New York Mortgage Trust Inc (NASDAQ: NYMT ) and Franklin Street Properties Corp. (NYSE: FSP ). The S&P 500 real estate sector has outperformed the overall market by a wide margin so far in 2021. However, the RIET ETF is positioned to generate a much higher yield than other popular REIT ETFs, which is an important factor for income investors in a historically low-rate environment. The largest real estate ETF in the market by AUM is the Vanguard Real Estate Index Fund ETF (NYSE: VNQ ), which has just a 3% dividend yield. To learn more about the new RIET ETF, investors can read the fund’s press release and prospectus on Hoya’s website . © 2021 Benzinga.com. Benzinga does not provide investment advice.
