Case Study: REITs

Leveraging ground-breaking Asian investment to grow iconic office holdings in the U.S.

Challenge

A corporate client was looking to tap into the Asian public markets for investment in the U.S. real estate market and came to us because of our top-tier public REIT experience.

Getting to Next

Responsively coordinating tasks, negotiations and schedules in North America and Asia, we put the real estate acquisitions and US structure in place, factoring in complex tax-efficiency considerations and listing on the Singapore stock exchange, with close to $1 billion at stake.

Results

Thanks to our work, the client became the first pure-play U.S. office REIT listed on an Asian exchange. We have assisted the client with subsequent acquisitions in realizing on its vision to acquire trophy office buildings in major metropolitan areas across the U.S.
