Warner Estate, which converted to real estate investment trust status on April 1, has become the latest member to join Reita, the educational and awareness campaign for Reits and property investment.

Warner Estate focuses on the active asset management of property held in funds, joint ventures and a wholly-owned portfolio, with an emphasis on improving the quality and quantity of income. The combined portfolio is valued at over GBP3.2bn and key partners include Morley, Bank of Scotland, Barclays and RBS.

‘We are delighted to welcome Warner Estate to Reita, where their input and support will be extremely valued,’ says the organisation’s programme co-ordinator Dave Butler. ‘Interest in Reita has continued to grow strongly with awareness amongst professional advisers already at over 60 per cent.

‘Despite current economic and market challenges, our educational roadshows, publicity events and educational work continue to receive tremendous support and recognition by our industry. And as our most recent research shows, more than half of advisers are still recommending their clients to include Reits within their portfolios, which is very encouraging news.’

Philip Warner, chairman of Warner Estate, says: ‘We have joined Reita as we are focused on not only developing the market but increasing awareness and understanding amongst investors of Reits as an attractive long-term investment opportunity. Reita is a highly complementary initiative to our own efforts and we look forward to working together in the future.’

Reita has also introduced a new databank centre on its web site at The service collates key market data and statistics from such sources such as FTSE, EPRA, Nareit and Investment Property Databank to help investment professionals research and compare property investment performance.

As well as providing a definitive list of UK Reits and property companies listed on the main market of the London Stock Exchange, the databank features single tables bringing together data such as market capitalisation, gross dividend yield and closing prices, along with links to financial calendars, sector focus information and industry news. It also includes a charting tool to compare the stock market performance of the FTSE/EPRA Nareit UK Reits and non-Reits indices against each other and all of their constituent companies.

Reita’s membership now includes 11 of the biggest quoted Reits and property companies, 10 fund managers, the London Stock Exchange, eleven merchant banks and advisers, legal firm DLA Piper, the British Property Federation and the Investment Property Forum.
