  • Chinese HY property passes the test of Times

    Times Property Holdings printed a $280m five year non call three bond this week in what was only the fourth Chinese high yield property firm to tap the international market in 2015. Even though the amount raised was small, its significance is anything but. A recovery for the much maligned sector could finally be on the cards.

  • Tough stance on property trusts is right move for Pakistan

    Pakistan’s latest draft law on real estate investment trusts (Reits) is getting industry participants hot under the collar. Many are calling the requirement for a perpetual lock-up of a Reit manager's stake inflexible and illogical. But the regulator is right to impose tough rules.

  • Singapore gets it Reit with end of stamp duty remission

    Singapore’s 2015 budget surprised many market participants this week when it was revealed that the 3% stamp duty remission enjoyed by the country’s real estate investment trusts will not be extended.

  • Peer-to-peer lenders are just banks — without the capital and regulation

    Don’t be distracted by the razzmatazz. Peer-to-peer lenders walk like banks and quack like them. As a retail bond offering from Wellesley & Co in the UK makes clear, bankishness is one of the best things about P2P. But don’t go thinking the risks are the same.

  • What happens in ABS shouldn’t stay in ABS

    The omerta code works fine for a weekend in Sin City, but not for one of the US’s most important funding products. The securitization market must adapt to the spirit, not just the letter, of new transparency requirements — it is quickly running out of excuses not to do so.
