REIT Academy International Forum
REIT Academy will host a monthly webinar with a focus on public REITs outside the continental United States. While the US REIT market is the gold standard, many high-quality public REITs are active and growing in the UK, Europe, Asia, Africa, Mexico and Canada. We will begin by taking a look at the number of public REITs in each of these nations, their size and which sectors – office, industrial, apartments and more - are most prevalent. Advisory Board members Craig Smith, CFA and Juliana Hess have extensive experience and relationships throughout the EMEA and the Pacific Rim. They will lead the global outreach for REIT Academy.
