Investment Analysis for Non-Listed Real Estate Investments

, Amsterdam

Investment analysis is a critical function in ensuring robust underwriting of acquisitions and maximising the income performance of assets. This 1.5-day live course will use a combination of theory, an illustrative cash-flow model and a case study, to demonstrate best practice modelling techniques within real estate. It will consider the inputs and outcomes of cash-flow modelling, as well as examining limitations and how to critique results.

The INREV Investment Analysis course starts with a bottom-up approach from the asset to the fund level, while afterwards focusing on the impact of issues such as debt, tax structuring and fees. The course brings all the elements together in a case study.

The course will include the following topics:

  • Investment analysis essentials including a high level understanding of cognitive biases in decision making
  • Key model inputs for real estate cash-flow analysis and model set-up
  • In-depth analysis of the impact of debt financing
  • The impact of taxes and structuring on real estate returns
  • The effect of specific fund fee structures and levels on returns to investors

The course will include presentations by industry experts, group discussions and a case study to allow participants to share their views. 

Who should attend the course?
This course is aimed at individuals involved in investment analysis at both the asset and fund level. This could include junior analysts or more experienced individuals wishing to get an update on cash-flow analysis for real estate. The course will be of interest for investors, investment managers and advisers, specifically acquisition, asset managers and lenders.
