Rise of REITs

With increased urbanisation and a booming real estate industry, the REITs industry has grown in importance across South-east Asia. REIT transactions have grown in number, and have also become ever more complex, often involving novel and nuanced issues in relation to property, trusts and finance law, as well as cross-border considerations.
