The changing dynamics of the REIT market

  • Will the activities of some businesses, which labelled themselves as REITs to avoid taxes and enjoy higher valuations result in a limiting of REIT powers and benefits?
  • Is the emergence of alternative asset classes such as data centres and e-commerce warehouses going to create new REIT opportunities in Asia and elsewhere?
  • We’ve recently seen the launch of both the first ETF with a focus on Asia Pacific REITs and the new SGX index tracking 30 Asia-Pacific REITs, but what does that really mean for the REIT market?
  • Will we see an increase in Asian REITs deploying capital into overseas projects?
  • In an increasingly competitive environment, how can REITs ensure that their portfolio and unit acquisitions continue to deliver value to their shareholders?
