What our students say

The Understanding the REIT price course was a great deep dive into REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust) Analysis, with easily accessible online content and engaging weekly topics accentuated by a wide range of industry guest speakers who provided outstanding insight into the world of real estate investing.

A particular highlight was the ´Portfolio Challenge´ in which class participants were able to monitor and analyse real like market movements which really aided in supplementing our learnings for the week

I thoroughly enjoyed Understanding the REIT price. Alex was a superb tutor, going through detailed material meticulously and the guest speakers were thought-provoking, resulting in a great learning experience. I have now been on two REIT specific courses, and this wins hands down.
