Real estate can be a very attractive proposition for both individual and institutional investors, offering the potential for high long-term, inflation-protected returns. While physical property has been a major and successful wealth-generating asset for private individuals for many centuries, real estate as a broader investable asset class has also been very rewarding for investors (both individual and institutional).
Real estate includes not just residential homes, but also pure land and a variety of income-generating properties, such as offices, shops, warehouses, and apartments. It is perhaps the easiest asset class to understand as it is visible, physical, and tangible, although its valuation and pricing can be subjective and complex. This courses explores these and other characteristics of the real estate asset class.
Topics covered by the course include:
• The key players in real estate markets
• The differences between the two real estate sectors, residential and commercial (and their subsectors), from an investment point of view
• The features of real asset as an asset class
• The main considerations for investors looking to invest directly in physical properties
• The various methods of indirect investment in real estate (such as REITs) and the differences between these methods
• The key determinants of property values
• The various methods of real estate valuation
A basic understanding of financial markets and instruments is assumed.

REAL ESTATE – INVESTING
This course describes the different means by which investors can obtain exposure to real estate as an asset class. It begins by looking briefly at the dynamics of both the residential and commercial real estate sectors from an investment point of view. The course then moves on to contrast direct investment in “bricks and mortar” to various methods of indirect investment, with particular emphasis on real estate investment trusts (REITs) which have become hugely popular in recent times.

REAL ESTATE - VALUATION
Real estate is generally considered to be an “alternative asset," complementary in a portfolio context given its low correlation with the stock, bond and money markets. Fund managers need to determine how much real estate to add to a portfolio and at what price. Here we learn about how investors can value real estate.
