In recent years investors purchased REITs and viewed them as a bond play, is the same thing true with foreign REITs?
I like GIM best for foreign bonds. The fact that you can usually buy it at a modest discount to NAV makes it all that much sweeter. If you want an open-ended fund, I believe PIMCO has one (PFUIX?), but they hold a more rstrictive list of stuff and hold things I think are questionable (bunds, etc.).
I hold foreign equities and bonds. Haven't made a leap to foreign REITs in part because you pay up so much for the exposure. If they ever re-open the fund, TAREX (whic I own a bit of) holds an increasing amount of foreign real estate plays/REITs.
