Ayala Land files for PH’s first REIT; broadens investment options for Filipinos
The REIT Act, passed by Congress in 2009, allows REIT companies to list and trade its shares of stock in the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) as an alternative means to raise funds for property development and expansion initiatives. The REIT is a new asset class that provides investors with dividend-based income, inflation protection, and portfolio diversification. It broadens investment options for Filipinos, opening the opportunity to own a stake in high-value real estate assets in the country.
Ayala Land’s initiative to pioneer REITs in the Philippines reflects its confidence in the local economy. Through this initial capital market transaction, ALI hopes to pave the way for the development of a REIT market in the country, bringing another milestone to the Philippine stock market. The company seeded AREIT, Inc. with Grade A office assets located in Makati CBD and is expected to expand its portfolio with new acquisitions in the future.
ALI seeks to do an Initial Public Offering (IPO) of AREIT, Inc. after receiving the regulatory approvals from the SEC and the PSE.
