Morgan Stanley Banker Says Timing Not Right for REIT IPOs

Jackson Hsieh, vice chairman at Morgan Stanley, joined for a video interview at REITWorld 2015: NAREIT’s Annual Convention for All Things REIT at the Wynn Las Vegas.

In the March/April edition of REIT magazine, Hsieh said that while the market for traditional IPOs is still open, the bar is “very high.”  In the subsequent months the bar for REIT IPOs has only got higher, he noted.

With REIT indexes basically flat, investors aren’t making money on existing floated companies, Hsieh said.
