FRI Fund Description

The First Trust S&P REIT Index Fund tracks a market-cap-weighted index of US companies involved in the ownership and operation of real estate

FRI Factset Analytics Insight

FRI delivers great coverage—at a price. It captures the US real estate market from top to bottom by holding a large basket of securities that traverse the market-cap range. The fund's defining trait is its diversity: Its holdings cut across all sectors and market caps. Reasonably marketlike, the ETF roughly captures commercial and residential REITs, but underweights specialized REITs such as hotels and hospitals, a bias some investors might prefer. Trading in FRI is easy and cheap for investors of any size, though it's not in the class of funds like the ultra-liquid IYR. FRI runs into some trouble with its fee, which is significantly pricier than many competing real estate ETFs. Actual holding costs are likely to be even higher thanks to less-than-stellar tracking, which makes Efficiency a soft spot for FRI.
