REITs in China – PBOC Governor talks about REITs
The market value of investable real estate in emerging Asia will eclipse the value of income-producing real estate in Europe within four years. Soon after, emerging Asia will overtake North America’s investable real estate stock. These forecasts from Lasalle’s The Real Estate Investment Universe in 2018, show that China, already the world’s second largest investable real estate market, is growing in value by 16 percent annually.
…the ever-expanding REIT alphabet
(6 April 2018)
In our frequent discussions with regulators, we talk about REITs as an ‘app’ – a tool for helping build the economic and social infrastructure that powers prosperity and development.
In doing so, REITs also create and democratise wealth. Our recent meetings with Chinese policy-makers led to talk about the many REIT ‘apps’ that could help achieve the PRC’s national priorities.
Officials are interested in a menu of REIT styles that can be mobilised to meet China’s ‘’quality growth’’ needs. This is one reason why they’re experimenting with so many "quasi-REIT" prototypes.
