Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) are one of the most reliable way to invest as they generate steady and consistent tax free cash flow. REITs also open up access for investors to participate in a diverse range of real estate assets with low capital outlay. By having and applying the right investment toolkit at your disposal could potentially boost your investment performance many folds and/or help you reduce your REITs investment risk.

In the upcoming The Essential REITs Toolkit Webinar, we will be covering:

  • Part 1: Understanding REITs
  • Part 2: Financial Toolkit for REIT Investing
  • Part 3: Sector Toolkit for REIT Investing
  • Part 4: Applying Your REIT Toolkit
  • Part 5: Q&A

Some key highlights that will be covered includes:

  • Why the traditional triple-constraint filter of high yield, low price-to-book ratio (P/B ratio), and low gearing typicaly ends up filtering sub-par REITs
  • Why it is dangerous to chase high yielding REITs without looking at other factors
  • The right metric to use when screening for high quality REITs
  • Case studies of REITs which are considered high quality
  • How do you know when is the right time to buy or sell your REIT
  • Step-by-step demo of how to screen for high quality REITs on your own
