Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

A real estate investment trust (REIT) is a company that owns and manages property on behalf of shareholders. REITs are exempt from corporate tax but must pay out 90% of their net property income to their shareholders. They are closed-ended and listed on a public exchange. REITs came into existence in the United Kingdom on 1 January 2007. As of October 2016, there are 44 REITs.

Owing to the result of the EU Referendum, the industry is expected to experience a turbulent year in 2016-17. Fears over the level of future demand for commercial real estate and rental yields and low demand in the wake of the vote led to a sharp decline in the value of many REITs.

Industry Report - Industry SWOT Analysis Chapter

Compared with other investment vehicles in the market, REITs are a fairly infant structure as they have only existed since 2007. Due to the nature of the industry, it is heavily affected by changes in the property market with downturns generally associated with economic slowdowns or demand shocks. Overall, industry value added (IVA), which measures the industry's contribution to the economy, is forecast to grow at a compound annual rate of 5.3% in the 10 years through 2021-22. Over the same period, UK GDP is forecast to rise at a compound annual rate of 2.3%. Typically, an industry is considered to be in the growth phase of its life cycle when revenue increases faster than UK GDP over a 10-year period.
