Course description

Bayfield Training

The aim of every real estate professional is to create a sustainable, profitable investment. Only by understanding how fund strategies were arrived at in the past are you able to learn and adapt to the future. The size and structure of the global real estate market, trends, opportunities, forecasting techniques and currency issues create the basis for the fund structures throughout the course.

This course introduces the fund management process, specifically applicable to real estate funds. The course revises the real estate market and the opportunities available before comparing the risks and rewards of investing in the underlying asset with investment in shares of a real estate fund (aka indirect real estate investment). When setting up a fund, the various different structures available and the broader legal framework for real estate investment activity in the UK are reviewed. Finally, financial analysis of the fund revising portfolio modelling theory and benchmarking performance is demonstrated using spreadsheet models.

On this course, you will…

  • Understand the fund origination process; real estate investment and strategy
  • Gain appreciation of investment management at the fund level
  • Learn the different types of funds available
  • Analyse real estate portfolio risk and return
  • Review the UK and international available benchmarks
