Alternative ways to invest in Service Properties Trust

Buying shares in just one company is generally considered a riskier bet than investing in a range of investments - AKA a "diversified portfolio". Experts generally recommend holding a mix of investments in specific assets and funds. Funds are ready-made portfolios of multiple companies' shares (potentially including Service Properties Trust), and the idea is that drops in the value of one constituent company's share price might be offset by rises in others.

Service Properties Trust is a major part of the NASDAQ, so it's included in many global funds and investment trusts, as well as tracker-style exchange traded funds (ETFs).
