…APREA’s Shanghai REIT Symposium + Welcome to new CEO + Farewell
(28 Dec 2018)
Shanghai: the room brimmed with many of China’s biggest real estate names.
APREA’s December REIT symposium drew a VIP crowd keen to discuss the road map for Chinese real estate securitisation in 2019.
The symposium followed APREA’s most recent discussions with senior regulators and policy-makers in Beijing, along with a seminar held with the People’s Bank Finance Centre, Tsinghua University and CRECC/C-REITs Alliance.
Our friends from NAREIT, John Worth and Bonnie Gottlieb, opened the Shanghai symposium with a run-down on REIT trends, performance and prospects in the USA.
NAREIT also updated us on pivotal work championed by REESA - the global REITs alliance, including plans for a first-ever conclave of (nearly) 40 REIT nations in 2020.
…REITs in China – what will happen in 2019?

(5 Dec 2018)
Amidst the turmoil of trade wars, Brexit, wobbly stock markets and interest rate rises, a common pro-Asia investment theme is emerging from real estate investors.
In particular, many real estate market leaders are keen to double down in China.
Despite its moderating economic dynamics, the view is China’s long-term trajectory and sheer size warrant greater strategic attention.
One major barrier is exit options.
Which is why so many direct investors and PE players are keen to see a fully-fledged REIT market in the People’s Republic.
…leading practice dashboard - update
(16 Nov 2018)
Thanks to all who’ve offered their thoughts on leading practice reporting tools.
For those who missed the bulletin, APREA has assembled a portal to world-class thinking on public real estate reporting.
The next step is to propose voluntary guidance on the specific principles, practices and tools relevant to Asian marketplaces.
After much consultation, we believe the most intuitive approach is to address these seven critical questions:
What are our reporting policies?
What do we own and how is our portfolio evolving?
What are our assets worth?
How did we perform?
How are we rewarded and how do we reward related-parties?
How do we govern?
What is our impact on society and the environment?

Low net supply has enabled a market recovery better than we expected over recent years. We no longer find much room left for occupancy gains; in our view, the current demand to supply dynamics remain tight enough to justify modest rental growth over several more quarters..
