Established in 1998, the REIT Center provides a forum for the study the and analysis of publicly-traded REITs and other real estate operating companies and the related corporatization, securitization, and consolidation trends that are transforming the real estate industry nationally and globally.
The Center’s goal is to serve as a sponsor for research, discussion, and analysis; an educational center for conferences and symposia for professionals and students; and a forum for leading thinkers from all sectors and professions in the industry to gather in order to exchange and to develop ideas. Among other activities, the Center sponsors an influential annual conference on REITs and a White Paper series.
New York University’s proximity to Wall Street creates an exciting focus for the Center as we seek to complement and to work with existing industry groups and trade associations with similar interests. The mission of the Center is to fulfill a need for in-depth study and analysis in an objective academic setting and thereby, to enhance the work of other groups.
