Lawyer: Portfolio Discounts Holding Back REIT IPOs

Mark Van Deusen, partner with the law firm Hunton & Williams LLP, joined for a video interview during REITWise 2015: NAREIT’s Law, Accounting and Finance Conference held in Phoenix.

Van Deusen discussed some of the factors driving the market REIT initial public offerings (IPOs). First, he pointed out that portfolios in REIT IPOs traditionally face a discount. That creates an impediment, Van Deusen said, especially in environments in which capital is flowing into the real estate market from private sources.
