Analyzing Risks & Rewards in Investing in Japan’s J-REIT Market

Corporate Luncheon
12 – 2 pm

Read the Event Summary.

The emergence of a market for J-REITs (Japan Real Estate Investment Trusts) has given investors interested in Japan’s commercial real estate market an alternative way to invest. However, to date the number of J-REIT offerings has been low, along with overall sector liquidity. What is needed to create liquidity and ensure a broad acceptance in the global equity marketplace for J-REITs, which could have a significant impact on Japan’s real estate market as well as all financial institution sectors? What are the factors that make J-REITs different from other REITs and how is the Japanese market likely to evolve in the future? Join a panel of experts who will discuss these and other issues.

Yuichi Hiromoto, President and CEO, Mitsubishi Corp.–UBS Realty Inc. and Executive Director, Japan Retail Fund Investment Corporation
Jeffrey Horowitz, Managing Director, Nikko Salomon Smith Barney
Michael Krupa, Executive Director, UBS Global Asset Management
