The Development and Preliminary Performance Analysis of Thai REITS

Understanding the development and performance of Thai Real estate investment trusts (REITs) is crucial. REITs were first introduced to investors as an investment tool, which could produce high dividends with moderate risk. In order to gain a basic understanding of this new attractive financial tool in Thailand, the risk and return characteristics of REITs were analyzed and investigated and correlations between the returns from REITs and other investment assets were derived. This research explores Thai REITs data in both width and depth aspects. The results of this study will be of benefit to investors and provide important information to them when making decisions about investments in the Thai REITs market. Investors will know what information is relevant to the investment return of Thai REITs and can use this knowledge to improve their investment performance.
