Real Estate Investors provides me with a focused, well managed commercial real estate exposure to the vibrant Midlands economy.  The management team with many years of experience in this region have successfully managed to assemble a portfolio of high yielding assets which benefit from good demand for commercial property with development optionality and positive rental growth.   The company has a strong income focus with a growing dividend and yields 7.0% historic.

REI continued to buy selectively throughout the downturn and have taken advantage of the current market sentiment to make some very smart decisions on disposals. They have also continued with their selective acquisition philosophy which has given them a solid asset base allowing them considerable flexibility when acquiring new assets. 2015 should be another great year for REI and we hope to help build on their success
