Property Futures and Securitisation - the Way Ahead book cover

Property Futures and Securitisation - the Way Ahead

This book provides an analysis of the attempts in both US and UK to chase the 'Holy Grail' of liquid property; the buying and selling of small manageable chunks of property and creating a market like those for shares, gilts and derivatives. This is the first book to explore liquid property from an insiders point-of-view, with coverage of all the issues and problems. A practical insight is provided into the techniques which could be employed to create liquidity in the property market, and the benefits that would result from such a phenomenon. This book will be of interest to members of the institutional investment world, chartered surveyors, property professionals and the financial advisory community.
