The portfolio may be a suitable investment for you if:
You are looking for a simple way to gain indirect exposure to the real estate market to further diversify your existing holdings, which could include other stock, bond, and money market investments.
You want a stock fund that offers the potential for above-average dividend income. (Historically, the securities that make up the index have provided higher dividend income than those in the S&P 500 Index.)
You are seeking modest growth of capital over the long term—at least five years.
