REIT Trustee

REITs invest in real estate properties and distribute the revenues generated from these assets, primarily rental income, at regular intervals to REIT holders.​

As an independent trustee with a strong operational framework and expertise, we're a preferred choice for setting up and administering REITs and InvITs.​

We deliver a full suite of services to trustees, which includes the following:​

  • Structuring from a legal and taxation perspective​
  • Transferring assets and listing assistance​
  • Creating an operational framework and common platform for participants including sponsors, investors, investment managers, principal valuers, project managers and stock exchange​
  • Oversight of activities of the business trust under the regulatory framework​
  • Legal due diligence on assets and monitoring the flow of funds​
  • Convening meetings of unit holders and the maintenance of records​
  • Investor relationship activity, including review of unitholders' complaints and their redress​
  • Regulatory compliance and reporting​
  • Annual administration during the life of the trust.

To take advantage of the global talent pool, companies are increasingly offering stock equity to attract and retain employees. The equity is usually awarded at a low cost in a pre-IPO phase, and in some cases involves globally mobile employees. Granting stock options to expatriate employees can introduce important tax obligations and risks in the home and host countries that are sometimes not fully understood by multinational employers.
