Classification of REIT

REIT is part of my portfolio and I try to hold REITs (from SGX) across different sectors. I want to see how my current REIT holdings are allocated, so I use the classification in my favourite PC game SimCity – R.C.I. for Residential, Commercial and Industrial. But some REITs, like hospital REITs, do not fall under any of this category. I refer to the classification in this post and simplify it to R.I.C.H.Residential/Hospitality, Industrial, Commercial and Healthcare. I calculate the allocation of my REIT holdings according to this classification and it looks like this (total is 100%).

REIT Allocation, June 2008

Clearly, when my asset allocation plan says it’s time to add REIT, I will add Residential/Hospitality REIT.
