Advisor Access spoke with CEO Craig Macnab about the promise of single-tenant retail properties, the company's commitment to its dividend and how it will continue to be a powerful partner for retailers.

Advisor Access: Describe National Retail's portfolio.

Craig Macnab: National Retail Properties owns a fully diversified portfolio of high-quality, net-lease retail properties located all across the country. We have properties in 47 states, leased to more than 400 different tenants.

It's a high-quality portfolio that maintains high occupancy with 98.8% of our properties filled. It's a durable, consistent portfolio.
