Financial Sector Stocks

Finance companies engage in the management and investment of money to most efficiently allocate capital. These companies have a wide variety of different structures, such as consumer-facing retail banks, insurance companies, real estate developers, REITs and closed-end funds. Finance company dividend yields vary widely, but many financial companies, such as REITs, are required to pay out the large majority of their earnings. As a result, financial companies on average offer dividend yields that are much higher than the wider market.
