  • DPUs for the reporting period across REITs under coverage are down 2-10% h-o-h/ y-o-y for the industrial and commercial sub-sectors. DPUs for hospitality REITs grew y-o-y, benefitting from the low base but sequential weakness emerged as seasonality overshadowed reopening tailwinds.
  • NAVs fell 0.3% to 2.3% on average from prior period figures across sub-sectors, led by revaluation losses, below-book placements and offerings, and forex impacts.

  • Reversions remain robust, ranging from high single-digit to mid-teens % points for the industrial and commercial sector. RevPAR/RevPAU grew 70% y-o-y for the hospitality sector.
