Fund highlights
  • Reduced rate sensitivity: Because short-term REITs can adjust pricing more frequently than longer-term REITs, they may adapt more quickly to changing market conditions and be less sensitive to interest rates
  • Attractive return potential: Offers the potential for attractive long-term risk-adjusted returns
  • Low cost, transparent solution: Provides cost-efficient, exchange-traded transparency and accessibility

Fund description

The Fund provides exposure to U.S. real estate investment trusts (REITs) with short-term lease agreements which may exhibit less price sensitivity to interest rate changes than REITs with longer-term lease agreements. The Fund seeks to track the investment results, before fees and expenses, of the Dow Jones U.S. Select Short-Term REIT Index which is composed of U.S. exchange-traded equity REITs that concentrate their holdings in apartment buildings, hotels, self-storage facilities and manufactured home properties which typically have shorter lease terms than REITs that invest in other sectors.

Index description

The Dow Jones U.S. Select Short-Term REIT Index (the “Index”) is composed of U.S. exchange-traded equity REITs that concentrate their holdings in apartment buildings, hotels, self-storage facilities and manufactured home properties, which typically have shorter lease durations than REITs that invest in other sectors. The Index is rebalanced on a quarterly basis and uses a rules-based methodology that weights REITs by market capitalization, subject to a 5% maximum weight per constituent.

Fund data

Performance

  • Average annual total returns
  • Morningstar Ratings

Average annual total returns

Morningstar ratings

Morningstar ratings are based on historical risk-adjusted total returns, which are not indicative of future results.

Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate so that shares redeemed may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be higher or lower than the performance shown. Total returns for a period of less than one year are cumulative. Returns assume reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. Market price returns are based on the closing market price.

Shares of ETFs are bought and sold at market price as opposed to net asset value. As a result, an investor may pay more than net asset value when buying and receive less than net asset value when selling. In addition, brokerage commissions will reduce returns. Fund shares are not individually redeemable directly with the Fund, but blocks of shares may be acquired from the Fund and tendered for redemption to the Fund by certain institutional investors in Creation Units.

A word on risk

Investing involves risk; principal loss is possible. There is no guarantee the Fund's investment objectives will be achieved. This ETF seeks to generally track the investment results of an index; however the Fund may underperform, outperform or be more volatile than the referenced index. This Fund invests in equity REITs, which invest the majority of their assets directly in real property and derive their income primarily from rents and capital gains from the sale of appreciated properties. Equity REITs can be greatly affected by economic downturns, by changes in real estate values, rents, property taxes, and interest rates, and by revisions to tax rules or other regulations applicable to REITs. The value of equity securities may decline significantly over short or extended periods of time. The Fund's assets will generally be concentrated in the securities of issuers in the real estate industry, and, accordingly, the Fund may be adversely affected by the performance of those securities, may be subject to increased price volatility and may be more susceptible to adverse economic, market, political or regulatory occurrences affecting that industry. These and other risk considerations, such as interest rate, non-diversification, and smaller company risks, are described in detail in the Fund's prospectus.

The Morningstar RatingTM for funds, or "star rating", is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product's monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods. ©2021 Morningstar, Inc.
