Investing in real estate has become more and more popular with those looking to build wealth.
However, traditional real estate investment models have immense barriers to entry. They create an onerous burden in terms of both regulatory and financial aspects that makes investing unfeasible for most of the potential investors.
Mitigate These Risk and Overcome Investing Challenges
So, if you are looking to invest in real estate perhaps in a foreign country, in addition to the significant capital required for purchasing the asset itself, you would generally need to incorporate a local entity as an investing partner since investment by foreign investors is restricted in most jurisdictions. You will also need to fulfill other statutory requirements including and not limited to taxation, accounting, and many other registration obligations as well as restrictions on the type of property funds.
Furthermore, foreign direct investment also has vulnerability attached to it in terms of micro and macroeconomic conditions in each country. To mitigate these risks and overcome investing challenges, the market offers Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) as an alternative investment vehicle. A REIT is a trust, corporation or an association that owns, or finances income-producing real estate and can be publicly listed or privately owned.

The first AUM (Asset under Management) will have a Net Asset Value of USD 75 million. Gradually by the end of 5 years, Global REIT is projecting an Asset Value of USD 10 billion.
