How the Global REIT Investment Challenge Started?
Jointly initiated by 16 renowned institutions of higher learning in Shanghai, China. The first challenge is organized by Asian Real Estate Research Institute.

        Originated in the U.S. in 1960, REITs are companies that own or finance income-producing real estate in a range of property sectors. These companies have to meet a number of requirements to qualify as REITs. Most REITs trade on major stock exchanges, and they offer a number of benefits to investors. Besides, under certain rules with regard to shareholder  structures, assets and income tests as well the dividends payout requirements, REITs do not need to pay Federal income taxes. Nowadays, over 30 countries have developed REITs. There are more than 230 REITs traded on the stock exchanges in the U.S., making the U.S. the biggest REIT market in the world.

        Global REIT Investment Challenge is initiated by several prestigious universities who are actively involved in research related to real estate finance. Organized by Asian Real Estate Research Institute (ARERI), the challenge Aims to promote the knowledge of commercial real estate management and investment, to study the real estate investment strategies, and to facilitate asset securitization and industrial development for REITs. The challenge also serves as a way of training the future industry leaders, providing network opportunities for young talents interested in asset management industry.

         This competition will be assessing on the combination use of Internet investment simulation and industry research case study. Sponsors of the 2019 - 2020 Global REIT Investment Challenge include Asian Real Estate Research Institute, S&P Global Market Intelligence, Singapore Exchange, EquitySim, etc. The challenge consists of three stages: Qualifying round, Advanced round and Final round.
