CFA Practice Question

Which of the following investments has the greatest liquidity?

A. RELP.
B. REIT.
C. Minority stake in privately held firm.
D. Equity stake in early stage venture capital investment.
Correct Answer: B

REITs in this case are the most liquid investment. There are several real estate securities that enable an investor to invest in real estate properties without experiencing the problems associated with illiquidity. These include real estate investment trusts (REITs) and real estate limited partnerships (RELPs). Since RELPs are partnerships and NOT traded on an organization (like a REIT) they have considerably less liquidity than a REIT.
