Adding value by delivering quality and insight into the South African Real Estate industry

In today's fast-changing world, the myriad challenges facing the real estate industry grow more and more complex. Specific areas of activity such as real estate development, management, financing and ownership structures – especially the growing influence of REITs and REIT-related structures — carry with them specialised bodies of knowledge as well as unique concerns. Moreover, national and world events can conspire with the rapid and unpredictable changes brought about by investment instruments, market conditions and tax regulations to create a business environment in which sound and timely answers to real estate concerns are crucial — and hard to find.
