Ed. by Graeme Newell and Karen Sieracki.

Real estate issues


Despite significant reductions in global property investment in 2008, cross-border transactions still make up about 32% of the estimated $1 trillion a year in commercial property transactions. An increasing amount of this is taking place within the context of real estate investment trusts (REITs), which now exist in twenty countries. This is accompanied by an increase in the number of global property securities funds, the development of property derivatives, and growth in sophisticated property financing products. Emerging markets have also improved their market transparency, legal frameworks and financial structures. This book explores all of these issues, taking a true global perspective on real estate investment, with chapters specifically focused on Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, and Shariah-compliant investment in the Islamic world. Edited by Newell (property investment, U. of Western Sydney) and Sieracki (owner, KASPAR Associates, Ltd.), it contains articles written by professionals from both academia and private industry.
