Investors interested in gaining targeted exposure to the real estate space can look to Pacer Financial’s new suite of ETFs that focus on the industrial, data infrastructure and retail real estate sub-sectors.
Pacer ETFs on Wednesday launched the Pacer Benchmark Industrial Real Estate SCTR ETF (NYSEArca: INDS), Pacer Benchmark Data & Infrastructure Real Estate SCTR ETF (NYSEArca: SRVR) and Pacer Benchmark Retail Real Estate SCTR ETF (NYSEArca: RTL), which each come with a 0.60% expense ratio.
“Real estate has long been an area for diversification and income. And real estate firms and REITs have benefited from e-commerce more than many realize,” Joe Thomson, Founder and President of Pacer Financial, Inc., said in a note.
These new real estate focused ETFs help investors gain exposure to the growing e-commerce space by investing in data center and distribution center REITs, along with higher quality retail real estate.

INDS tries to reflect the performance of the Benchmark Industrial Real Estate SCTR Index, which is comprised of cell tower REITs, data center REITs, and similar facilities – these cell towers and data processing centers store the information and handle the orders that start the e-commerce process.
