Key Points

    • High Dividend Yield Potential
      Yields from mortgage REITs have historically been higher than those of equity REITs and many income-oriented securities

    • Comprehensive Mortgage Finance Exposure
      Mortgage REITs provide exposure to mortgage investments ranging from agency MBS to commercial loan origination to mortgage servicing rights

    • Industry in Transition
      Mortgage REITs may potentially stand to benefit from the evolving mortgage finance market but are sensitive to interest rate and regulatory changes
