I wasn't the original poster, but I have some experience with IGR and also with RWF, both closed end international REIT funds. Neither one is purely international (they both include investments in the US). Both pay monthly and both have done extremely well in 2006.
The dividends have been consistent, along with a large year end payout coming soon, but as the price has gone up the yield has naturally gone down and is now between 5% and 6%. IGR still trades at a discount, RWF now trades at a premium to NAV.
A good place for more specific information than the general stuff I wrote here is www.etfconnect.com
which is one of the best sites for anything on ETFs.
