Real estate ETF

Salam O Alaikum,

Any suggestions for halal real estate EFT, funds?

If you’re looking for a pre-vetted ETF, check out $SPRE by SP Funds. If you want to avoid the expense ratio, just view the ETF’s holdings and invest in them directly.

Alternatively, if you’re using Zoya, scroll down on the Companies screen, click “See All” in the Finance sector, then “Filter” on the top right, and select Shariah Compliant only. You’ll find a few shariah compliant REITs in the list there.

$RITA ( ETFB Green SRI REITs ETF) is another Shariah-compliant real estate ETF. It was recently listed on NYSE in December 2021

This is an interesting product $RITA. It appears to go beyond just a numerical screen, it includes social/environmental.

Green Screening. Eligible REITs are further screened to eliminate any REITs that have not received a Green Certification from an eligible third-party certifying body (e.g., LEED certifications from the U.S. Green Building Council or BREEAM certifications from Building Research Establishment Ltd.).
