A REIT and Fund Company With a Low Profile

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- On Wednesday, after the markets close, the financial world will learn the latest earnings news on a company that's received little fanfare.

Cohen & Steers (CNS - Get Report) may deserve a place on our "watch list" for a number of reasons. Since its inception in 1986 the New York City-based firm operates as an investment manager in the United States, Japan and elsewhere internationally. It has offices in London, Brussels, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Seattle and serves institutional and individual investors around the world

CNS focuses on global real estate securities, global-listed infrastructure, real assets, large-cap value stocks and preferred securities. It primarily manages institutional accounts, open-end mutual funds, and closed-end mutual funds.

None of its ETFs seem to be that popular with investors. Yet, when you check out the CNS Web site you'll find the company knows a lot about REITs (real estate investment trusts). Also there, one of the company's officers, Executive V.P. Thomas Bohjalian, offers a great article titled "REITs: Building on Success," which is a must-read for serious investors.

The parent CNS also manages alternative investment strategies such as hedged real estate securities portfolios and private real estate strategies for qualified investors. In addition, it provides distribution services for its funds and advisory consulting services to model-based strategies accounts.

The company also manages its sponsored open-end and closed-end mutual funds, U.S. and non-U.S. pension plans, endowment funds, foundations, and sub-advised funds for other financial institutions. It has an impressive array of ways to make revenue flow and grow.

Before looking at the analysts' projections for Wednesday's earnings and revenue numbers, take a look at one of the company's ETFs, the Cohen & Steers Global Realty Majors ETF (GRI), which recently hit a 52-week high and, as of March 30, yields 6.68%. GRI has an appealing three-year average annual return of nearly 14%. If dividends were reinvested at that return rate, $10,000 would turn into $20,000 in a little over five years!
