Your investment can earn returns in two ways:
Dividends represent your share of any income earned on the projects in your portfolio. You receive dividends as quarterly cash payments that are either distributed to your bank account or reinvested, depending on your preference. To learn more about dividends at Fundrise, read our full blog post.
Appreciation represents an increase in the value of your investment. This portion of the estimated return comes from changes in the net asset value (NAV) of the shares. To learn more about appreciation at Fundrise, read our full blog post.
