Investment & REITs

Build value. Reduce risk. Improve performance.

Industry-leading services that drive bottom-line value

Today’s real estate investing industry is increasingly competitive as organizations compete against other real estate investment trusts (REITs), pension funds, insurance companies, private equity firms, and foreign investors. As a result, REITs must balance increasing yield on their investments while capitalizing on opportunities to raise funds.

Within this complicated landscape, a significant opportunity exists to diversify and create a portfolio with higher, more stable returns.

BDO helps the investment and REIT sector take advantage of geographic diversification, intensification opportunities with existing properties, and new development projects to boost long-term value. Along with implementing practical digital tools, we deliver valuations, internal control support services, and corporate governance solutions, helping our clients better understand, grow, and protect their assets.
