Our focus on winning citiesSchroder European Real Estate Investment Trust
What is a winning city?
Demand is increasingly concentrated in 'Winning Cities', offering a competitive advantage in terms of higher levels of GDP, employment and population growth; differentiated local economies with higher-value industries; well-developed infrastructure; and places where people want to live and work. Winning Cities will change over time and investments will be made in other locations where we see higher rates of future growth that could lead to mispricing opportunities.
What are the risks?
Past performance is not a guide to future performance and may not be repeated.
The value of investments, and the income from them, can rise and fall and investors may not get back the amount originally invested.
Companies which invest in a smaller number of assets carry more risk than those spread across a larger number of assets.
The Company may invest solely in property located in one country or region. This can carry more risk than investments spread over a number of countries or regions.
The Company may borrow money to invest in further investments, this is known as gearing. Gearing will increase returns if the value of the assets purchased increase in value by more than the cost of borrowing, or reduce returns if they fail to do so.
The fund holds investments denominated in currencies other than sterling, changes in exchange rates will cause the value of these investments, and the income from them, to rise or fall.
The dividend yield is an estimate and is not guaranteed.
