The impacts of Covid-19 have spread much wider than anyone could have anticipated, with multi-percentage point daily swings in global stock markets becoming the new normal over the past month, services shutting down and employees working remotely.
One sector feeling the heat is REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts), with hotels, gaming, retail and offices being the most affected due to government-mandated lockdowns and social distancing, though even residential REITs have come under some downward pressure.
In fact, the Vanguard REIT ETF CFD nearly halved in value in less than three weeks, dropping from $93.78 on March 4 to $55.65 on March 23.
