REITs the way forward? - Major Asia Pacific REIT Market Capitalisation
With newly emerging markets joining the world of listed REITs, global investors will soon have more choice of where to invest. More Asian countries are planning to roll out their versions of REITs in coming months, after taking more than a decade to finally embrace the concept of securitising real estate.The bottom line is that the choice of listed property securities in Asia Pacific remains limited, and the rollouts of IPOs this year in the midst of the pandemic will, at best, cause a ripple in the global REITs ocean.
 
Topics 
Discussion will touch on
  • Is the cap rate compression story driving the value appreciation?
  • Institutional investors appetite in regional REITs as opposed to direct asset purchases?
  • REIT’S on an acquisition spree in certain markets?
  • Performance of REITs by country
