GLOBAL- FTSE has launched a dozen indices providing exposure to emerging markets real estate securities.
FTSE also now offers regional subsets of the emerging markets real estate index through the FTSE EPRA/NAREIT Emerging EMEA Index, the Emerging Europe Index, Emerging Middle East and Africa index, Emerging Americas Index and Emerging Asia Pacific Index.
All are offered as a price index and a total return index, said Ronnee Ades, head of alternative at the FTSE group.
Ades said: "The global real estate marketplace has grown significantly in both size and diversity over the past few years. At the same time, investors are increasingly expressing interest in accessing emerging markets."
Philip Charls, CEO of EPRA said: "It is vital that investors are able to accurately track the performance of real estate stocks across the world. We believe that real estate investment trusts (REITs) and other listed property vehicles offer investors effective exposure to the emerging markets covered by the extended FTSE EPRA/NAREIT series."
In March, FTSE plans to continue to expand its series of global real estate indexes, though more details were not provided.
