Vanguard Real Estate Index Fund Admiral Shares (VGSLX)

Post by Closer2323 » Thu Dec 06, 2018 2:41 pm

How susceptible is this fund to the connection to Malls or Retail? i.e. assuming that market continues to decline due to the Amazon effect how much would that practically effect this fund? Or is it diversified enough beyond that space that wouldn’t necessarily cause big issue?

The REIT fund would sell the malls and buy the Amazon warehouses.

OTOH, the malls would be sold to Amazon and converted to warehouses. The parking lots would be for employee vehicles and all the delivery vehicles.

It says at Vanguard that 15.6% is tied to retail. If you beleive in efficient markets, the downward trend of retail is already priced in.
