REIT

Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) are a new means of investment in the Caribbean Region which will be subject to Eastern Caribbean Securities Regulatory Commission (ECSRC) regulations. Developers can benefit from REITs with easier access to relatively lower cost capital, allowing them to develop institutional grade real estate. By selling stabilised assets to REITs, property developers can unlock capital that can be more effectively deployed in new development projects.

Investors can also benefit from REITs, with a potential to acquire a total return on investments receiving both the capital appreciation and yield. Historically, they have provided strong dividends plus the potential for moderate, long-term capital appreciation. Additionally, REITs have offered investors liquidity, portfolio diversification and strong corporate governance.
