Capital Markets & Investing

The Real Estate capital markets have evolved over the past 15 years to include more sophisticated and diverse capital structures and investment opportunities in private and public markets, with institutional ownership taking on an increasing presence in the marketplace. Key players in the Real Estate sector have expanded to include mutual fund managers and equity capital markets participants along with the analyst community playing an active role, and public company managers and their boards placing increasing importance on sound corporate governance. This course will discuss various ways of raising capital across the Real Estate sector, REIT vs. corporate structures, the IPO process, related valuation and performance measurement concepts in the public markets, and current issues facing the capital markets with a focus on governance. In addition, this course will utilize a combination of lectures, guest speakers, and mini case studies designed to replicate actual day to day experiences of various market participants.
