Real Estate Investment Trust (REITís)

Rs. 3,000.00



Introduction:
Real estate can be broken down into three categories based on the risk profile of the asset. These are personal properties, investment properties and infrastructure properties. Properties falling in the third category are not usually invested in by the private sector in India.
Real estate needs to be analyzed physically as well as in terms of the legal rights and responsibilities. Valuation of properties can be done either as sum of the parts (land plus building) or a comparison with other properties in the area or on the basis of the ability to generate revenue streams.
Professional management attempts to limit the risks in real estate investment. Factors such as expertise in legal issues, knowledge of current trend in property markets, ability to maintain properties are some of the advantages of professional management.
Real estate schemes provide exposure to the property market through small investments, they provide professional management, thus reducing the risks involved and also brings in the much-desired liquidity for the investors. Indian mutual funds have been given certain tax concessions and investors can benefit from them.
Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) have been in existence in the United States of America for the past several decades making there way into global market. REITs own income producing real estate and enjoy special tax status on confirming to certain stipulations.
While the first REIT was established in 1960, the real impetus to the industry came after an amendment in the tax laws in 1986, conferring special tax status to REITs. REITs were also allowed greater freedom to operate and manage real estate, at around the same time.
REITs became a popular way of accessing the capital markets during the early 1990's when property values dropped between 30 and 50 percent. On the other hand, investors, finding value in commercial properties found REITs a convenient way of gaining exposure to that market.
REITs appear to be here to stay, primarily due to the structure providing liquidity to investors, the higher sense of security accompanying professional management and a good performance logged in by the REIT industry.
REITs differ from Indian Mutual funds in respect of the structure being that of a company, ability to raise money through debt and preference capital, being exclusively close ended and the need to distribute at least 95 percent of income as dividends, among others. This is detailed while suggesting Indian REIT model.
As mutual funds are well understood as a vehicle for investment by small investors, it is recommended that the same structure be extended to Real Estate Investment Schemes (REIS) in India. However, in addition they can also be structured in form of Venture funds or private equity funds provided necessary amendments and regulations are put in place. REIS should be governed by the existing guidelines and necessary modifications should be made to the Securities Exchange Board of India (Mutual Fund) Regulations.
