Tigere REIT set for historic debut on stock exchange. www.theexchange.africa

By listing, the REIT aims to attract focused and permanent capital for the promoter to develop further assets, support the Insurance and Pensions Commission and Ministry of Finance and Economic Development in their efforts to provide liquidity and deepen the savings pool through REIT products and also to provide retail and institutional investors quality and liquid commercial real estate investment vehicle.

Based on the published prospectors, the company said the economic growth of a nation is driven by a vibrant commercial infrastructure both industrial and retail properties to support production and trade.

The development of quality commercial property is more than imperative in the Southern African country as the economy is set for a path of recovery that is expected to revitalize significant economic activity.

“The participation of local beneficiaries in the development and ownership of such property fosters an inclusive capital growth and sources of passive income for average Zimbabweans. This presents a strong case for a well-structured REIT that allows participation of investors with minimum capital requirement, offering value preservation and stable return on capital through income distributions and capital gains.

One of the features that make the property unique as an investment is that it has a high unit value in comparison to other investments.

A nominal amount like ZWL$1,000.00 can buy an individual investor shares of a publicly listed company on the ZSE and the same amount in US dollars can purchase a decent number of shares through an offshore brokerage account.

This is not usually the case with real estate. There is very little an individual investor can do with ZWL$1,000.00 in terms of direct property investment, at least in the conventional sense.

Even with access to mortgage finance, an investor will also tend to be limited by their credit standing in terms of the funds that they can deploy into property investments.
