International REIT index returns chronicles the annual returns of international REIT stocks as measured by stock indexes.
The growing proliferation of indexes from index providers, along with a corresponding growing number of index funds and ETFs, creates a number of issues for investors, since the index returns of the different providers result in a dispersion of both yearly and multi-period returns. Many existing International REIT index funds and ETFS are invested in Real Estate Securities indexes (RESI) which include Real Estate Operating Companies (REOC) in addition to REITS. Index returns for these RESI indexes are included in the first page of the spreadsheet table. Page two details the pure International REIT indexes supplied by Dow Jones and S&P. The FTSE EPRA/NAREIT Global Real Estate ex-U.S. Index underwent a restructuring in 2008, with the addition of Emerging Market REITS and a subsequent expansion of the index series. The existing Global ex-US index transitioned to the FTSE EPRA/NAREIT Developed Real Estate ex-U.S. Index.
