Economic Recovery Set to Drive the Office Real Estate Industry

This financial assessment study analyzes the financial ratios of public companies worldwide in the office real estate investment trust industry. Public companies in the office REIT industry are first identified. Their financials are then gathered and ratios such as return on equity and EBIT margin are computed. After this, the ratios are divided into 4 categories: profitability, liquidity, activity, and solvency. Weights are assigned to different ratios based on industry averages, and an overall rank is determined. Market-based numbers and the number of properties managed are also considered. The study presents key factors that impact industry dynamics, top performers by region, and market outlook.

CEO’s Perspective

1. Major economies worldwide are on a path toward recovery, which is expected to boost the performance of office real estate investment trusts (REITs).
2. Signs of recovery in the global economic scenario are expected to improve job-creation rates and thereby employment rates, more so in North America than in the eurozone.
3. Total returns on office REIT stocks have shown X-year cycles of peaks and valleys. The trend in total returns has mirrored that of the residential REIT total index returns.
4. Emergence of modular and technology-driven workplaces and Mega Cities and Mega Regions are expected to gain momentum in the near future.
5. Investors in the commercial real estate space are enjoying benefits of quantitative easing (QE), more so in the United States. The adverse effects of fading QE may include a decline in equity markets, blowout in bond yields, and a shake to the economy itself.

Office REIT

After diversified REITs and specialized REITs, office REITs occupy the largest share in terms of number of companies worldwide. Over the past decade, public offerings (both primary and follow-on) have dominated transactions globally.
