On 1 May 2013, the SA listed property sector was brought into line with international standards, when the JSE launched the Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) sector.

 A Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) is a company that owns, and in most cases, manages income-producing commercial real estate such as offices, apartments, warehouses, hospitals, malls, hotels and in some instances, even timberlands. REITs will eventually replace property unit trusts (PUTs) and property loan stock companies (PLS), in order to simplify taxation and enhance fund governance.
