REIT instruments were introduced into the Mexican market in 2011.
Mexico’s portfolio of retail, industrial and service properties at the time benefited the adoption of this instrument created in the US in the 60s.
REITs allow institutional investors to channel long term resources that enable developers to expand and renew the real estate retail pool.
In December 2012, we helped file the 3rd IPO of these type of instruments in Mexico, with one billion dollars in income globally, one of the largest in the Mexican market.
Due to the global nature of the offer, the firm required to meet different legal and compliance standards in terms of the messages to be communicated in each jurisdiction.
As it was a relatively new investment product in the Mexican market, the business media outlets were not familiar enough with it, and could not differentiate it from the infrastructure business unit of the same brand name.
