2017: Are Return Expectations for Canadian REITs and REOCs Commensurate with Risk?
Following a period where double digit returns were the norm, the REIT sector has faced and dealt with some challenges. But the combination of cap rate compression, the volatility of Canadian capital markets, the potential for hikes in interest rates, and the declining availability of appropriate investment properties are creating a changing environment for REITs and REOCs.
The current state of this asset class and what the future likely holds will be among the many themes and topics that will be the focus of discussion at the 14th annual RealREIT conference on Thursday, September 7 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
The program will provide valuable insights from the perspectives of senior REIT executives, portfolio and investment managers, real estate analyst and other key intermediaries. RealREIT will present high-quality speakers on very topical issues. Opportunities for networking will also be available throughout the day.
The conference is organized by the Real Property Association of Canada and Informa Canada Inc. (the producers of the Real Estate Forums) in collaboration with RBC Capital Markets Real Estate Group, the principal sponsor of the event.
We hope you will take advantage of this high value and very informative program.
