Real estate finance is now available from banks, insurance, pension and private equity funds, with appropriate gearing allowing real estate investors and developers to have access to larger opportunities and to leverage returns.
Some commercial real estate investments use very low debt levels whereas some other have a very high debt ratio, but overall an adequate balance between equity and debt can be beneficial on a risk adjusted basis in order to support sustainable real estate – and economic – growth.
On this course, participants will build up knowledge from time value of the money to understanding about the financial markets and debt structures, in both public (listed) and private markets and main terms. They will learn how to access the debt markets, the main players, and how to calculate simple debt structure, interest payments and loan amounts.
By enhancing the knowledge and skills in real estate finance, participants will be enabled to improve their performance when interacting with clients from the finance and investment community.
