FS Credit Real Estate Income Trust

A differentiated way to generate income by investing in commercial real estate across the U.S.

Time to reframe real estate allocations

Centering on commercial real estate debt to provide:

  • Income: Invests with a primary objective to generate income
  • Preservation: Focuses on managing volatility and preserving capital
  • Diversification: Complements a traditional portfolio and existing real estate allocation

FS Credit REIT is suitable only for eligible long-term investors because the investment has limited liquidity. Distributions are not guaranteed and may be funded from return of capital or offering proceeds. Carefully review these and other risks at the end of the video. Commercial mortgage loans are illiquid and may not have a secondary market. Consider the key risks before investing. While commercial mortgage loans are typically secured by a first-priority mortgage, they are subject to the risk of default. There is no assurance that commercial real estate investments will provide regular, stable distributions.

Tax reform

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 introduced a change to the taxation of ordinary REIT dividends.3

  • REITs are generally not taxed at the corporate level to the extent they distribute all of their taxable income as dividends.
  • The tax law provided a 20% deduction on ordinary REIT dividends.
  • As a result, REIT investors receive higher after-tax income compared to the prior tax law.
