Overview
Regardless of whether you are a real estate professional, occupier, owner, developer or investor, the impact of Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) on the real estate industry cannot be ignored. This course is designed to provide a broad understanding of REITs. Beginning with an overview and history of REIT structures in the U.S. (where REITs were initially formed in 1960 and probably have the most structured alternatives), the course then continues to provide an overview of various other global REIT structures in a comparative format. The course discussion compares REITs to other investment structures in the capital markets identifying any correlation.

Once this overview is provided, the course delves into the details of structuring, underwriting and valuing a REIT. We discuss common financial metrics used to analyse REITs for debt underwriting and principal investment, as well as methods to determine REIT valuations. Motivations and considerations for choosing different REIT structures will be discussed. Case studies and class exercises will proliferate throughout the course.
