Event Details

Event overview   
Should REITS be treated as a portfolio of real estate asset or a business that operates real estate?  If it is the former, then using a net asset value built from the sum of the valuation of its real estate portfolio would be most appropriate.  But if it is the later, then a discounted cash flow metrics that focuses on the net income or dividend of the REIT would be more suitable.  The merits of both approaches will be examined, followed by an analysis using a convergence of the two methods for a robust solution will be presented.  Topics of the training include:
  • What are REITs?
  • How do institutional investors use REIT?
  • Should REITs be valued as real estate or as stocks?
  • Real estate approach based on net asset value
  • Stock approach based on discounted cash flow and discounted dividend model
  • Latest approach based on fair value model from economic value add
