Item description for The introduction of German REITs- Market structure and potential by Felix A. Leuschner...
Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) are a bridge between two worlds, the capital markets at one end and the real estate sector on the other, leading to a unique risk/return profile. They bear benefits neither of which can realize standing alone, resembling a hybrid between real estate and equity. REITs invest directly in property and pass on almost all earnings to their shareholders as dividends. By distributing most of their profits, REITs get special tax treatment and avoid corporate income tax. Because of that REITs have proven very attractive to investors: Their returns have beaten most major equity benchmarks over three decades, with lower volatility, while offering predictable cash flows and high dividend yields. Further, they have a low correlation with other asset classes, aiding portfolio diversification. In Germany real estate has been the most popular investment theme of the past three years, despite its significant underperformance compared to European peers, with open-end funds receiving almost all money inflows. The listed sector, however, is insignificant, both in terms of size and liquidity, and is in desperate need of a catalyst. The introduction of a G-REIT structure could potentially be the long-awaited saviour that could transfer the importance of German real estate into the listed sector. The REIT discussion in Germany has reached a serious stage, as almost all of the involved parties seemingly agreed about the usefulness of a REIT structure. The purpose of this book is to highlight the case for REITs in Germany, to analyse the progress of REITs in countries that have already installed a REIT regime and to look at what the introduction of a G-REIT would ultimately mean for the German real estate market.
