Known for being parent company to Emirates REIT, Equitativa based in the United Arab Emirates, has announced a US$500m real estate investment trust targeting all sectors of real estate in Indonesia. Standing shoulder to shoulder with Stern Resources- a New York based investment holding company- it has alighted on the promising fundamentals of this market, especially its demography. With a rapidly growing middle class and consumer culture, it is little surprise Equitativa has extended its reach in this direction. What is more interesting is how it will be able to execute in an already competitive landscape with many entrenched local players. This is not to say there are not avenues for disruption, however, it will require analytical breadth to work across sectors. The structure used may enable greater participation from outside Indonesia and offer transparency which is sometimes highlighted as a downside of the market.
