One of the most common questions I am asked in my seminars is, “What types of asset classes are suitable in our retirement portfolios? Endowment, annuity, universal life, bonds, equities, physical properties, land banking, hedge funds, etc?”

REIT stands for Real Estate Investment Trust, and can serve as an alternative to investing in physical properties. I will share 5 reasons to include REITs as alternatives to physical real estate in your retirement portfolio.
