...China REITs beat all other Asian REIT markets
(29 June 2018)
According to the latest edition of the GPR/APREA Performance Snapshot, Chinese REITs trumped all other AsiaPac REIT markets in the past year.
‘’Hang on’’, you say, there are no true REITs in China. How can you win a race you haven’t entered?
It’s true, there’s no formal REIT code in China. However, there are plenty of property assets located on the Chinese mainland that 'live' in Singapore and Hong Kong-based REITs.
In fact, there’s around USD4.5 billion worth of real estate in seven REITs where every square metre is located in China and every RMB of income is generated on the mainland.
And to be crystal clear, we’re not including any of the 30-plus quasi-REITs in this tally.

India’s securities regulator has recently permitted a swathe of funds to include I-REITs in their investment mandates.
The regulator also gave the nod to six major foreign investors who wish to snare a slice of India’s massive real estate growth potential via REITs.
At least two REIT IPOs are now filed or close to filing with the regulator, and more are expected in the coming months.
