All the funds are co-managed by Eduardo Repetto, Chief Investment Officer at Avantis, and senior portfolio managers Ted Randall, Mitchell Firestein and Daniel Ong.
The AVRE ETF pursues the benefits associated with indexing (diversification, low turnover, transparency of exposures), but with the ability to add value by making investment decisions using information in current prices.
The fund invests primarily in a diverse group of real estate securities globally, in particular real estate investment trusts (REITs) and REIT-like entities.
It tracks the S&P Global REIT Index and has an expense ratio of 0.17%.
Holdings, as at October 4, include:
- American Tower Corp (NYSE: AMT) – 6.68%
- Prologis Inc (NYSE: PLD) – 5.04%
- Public Storage (NYSE: PSA) – 3.70%
- Crown Castle International Corp (NYSE: CCI) – 3.69%
