The Cohen & Steers Realty Majors Portfolio Index offers what we believe is a superior approach to capturing the U.S. REIT market, providing a liquid, diverse representation of companies leading the real estate industry.

  • Applications
    With weightings similar to those an actual investor would use, Cohen & Steers Realty Majors Portfolio Index (RMP) can be used to index assets, as a selection universe, as an underlying index for derivative instruments or a performance benchmark.
  • Investment thesis
    Composed of REITs that we believe are dominant in their respective property sectors, RMP is a unique, modified cap- weighted total return index of companies that is designed to mirror the dynamic changes taking place in the REIT market.
  • Competitive advantages
    RMP is composed of REITs that we believe are best positioned to lead or benefit the most from the securitization of the U.S. real estate industry. Stocks included in the index are also significantly more liquid than those in other REIT indexes.
