The article looks at the growth of real estate investment trusts (REITs) in London, England. Rob Noel, chief executive of Land Securities, says REITs are supposed to be masters of the balance sheet and masters of the real estate market, but they have produced an alpha which is below the market beta over the past five years. It is noted that industry participants agree that the prospects of the London-based REITs are looking healthier by the day.
