Related Product(s): Teaching Note
Set in 2003, this Case presents the relative merits and demerits of direct and indirect methods of international property investment from the perspective of an Australian property company, LandLease (Asia) Property Limited (LL). It wished to gain exposure to the Hong Kong property sector and had the option of investing directly by acquiring real property assets, or indirectly by acquiring interests in investment vehicles whose underlying investment performance was linked to the property sectors. LL was particularly interested in creating an investment portfolio and listing it as a REIT in Hong Kong. This Case compares and contrasts the most common forms and strategies of real estate investment. The relative attractiveness of direct and indirect international property investments will depend on the requirements, objectives and financial strength of the investors. Despite differences in the underlying asset base and quality, direct and indirect investments are not mutually exclusive. This means there could be advantages in combining different forms of property investment to achieve a satisfactory return.
