2012 REIT Capital Survey Executive Summary
March 20, 2012
Our fourth survey yielded responses from 28 public real estate companies. These companies represent over $200 billion in assets or roughly 30% of the entire REIT market, as measured by total assets. As an advisor to over 90 public real estate companies, representing roughly 70% of all US-based REIT assets, Chatham has a unique perspective on how REITS are funding themselves and managing resulting risk exposures. We hope this survey allows us to serve you better by providing greater insight into how public real estate companies are managing capital and financial risks in the current capital markets environment. Further, we hope to increase the depth of our understanding of your business, and the industry, to make us better advisors.
