I really want to get an REIT investment into my portfolio. I am happy with Doubleline as a company as I have a lot of my portfolio in DSEEX and have been very happy with the returns. https://doublelinefunds.com/colony-real-estate-and-income-fund/
It seems the investment strategy with DLREX is similar to DSEEX in that they "Maintain a core portfolio of debt instruments that focuses on global fixed income sector rotation while simultaneously obtaining exposure to U.S. REITs through the Colony Capital Fundamental US Real Estate Index. The unique structure of the DoubleLine Colony Real Estate and Income Fund allows investors to potentially simultaneously access returns of the real estate equity markets and fixed income markets. By using an equity index swap, $1 invested in the strategy provides approximately $1 of exposure to each market."
DLREX just rolled out in December 2018 so it doesn't have much history. Another downside is the ER at 1%.
I have found plenty of prior conversations around DSEEX/DSENX but haven't fund any on DLREX. Does anybody have any insight or currently invested in DLREX? What are your thoughts? Or would I be better served going with either an active REIT fund or REIT index fund?
