Listed Real Estate

Real Estate — A new assessment of an established sector

Separate from Financials at last. Starting January 2019, Real Estate will be placed in its own Industry group within the  Industry Classification Benchmark (ICB). Real estate as its own industry — consistent with the unique characteristics of listed Real Estate equity — solidifies market sentiment around its historical placement. But whatever its classification, FTSE Russell has long understood the importance of this segment to investors, and has been working for decades with established industry associations to develop meaningful measurement of the market.
