About this item
Real Estate represents an increasingly significant global asset class and must be treated as unique in its characteristics by investors and researchers, particularly in light of the global financial crisis.
The Routledge Companion to Real Estate Investment provides a cutting edge and authoritative overview of the real estate asset class and the main actors in the industry. The Companion focuses on the current academic research and its relevance for practical applications.
The book is divided into six parts, each containing specially written chapters by international experts in the relevant field. The contributors introduce the different real estate investment sectors, before providing an institutional overview of the asset class and investment vehicles. The chapters then discuss the industry players and their investment motives, before outlining performance measurement, pricing, portfolio management and future research and industry developments.
This Companion provides a comprehensive reference for students, academics and professionals studying, researching and working in real estate investment, finance and economics.
