Bayes Real Estate Research Centre online short course “Understanding the REIT price”. Registration now open
Beginning on October 17th and delivered over six weeks by leading academics from the Bayes Business School (formerly Cass), as well as industry experts, “Understanding the REIT price” will provide a thorough understanding of the factors driving the valuations of the listed real estate sector, the direct property market and the stock market , explain the reasons behind any disconnect between public and private markets, and explore the specific investment characteristics of listed real estate versus other equities from an asset allocation perspective.
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.
