Book Description

Real Estate Investment: A Strategic Approach provides a unique introduction to both the theory and practice of real estate investing, and examines the international real estate investment industry as it reacts to the global financial crisis.

Andrew Baum outlines the market and the players who dominate it; the investment process; the vehicles available for investment; and a suggested approach to global portfolio construction. The book contains many useful features for students including discussion questions, a full further reading list and case studies drawing on international examples from the UK, continental Europe, the USA and Asia.

Ideal for undergraduate and postgraduate students on all real estate and property courses and related business studies and finance courses, Real Estate Investment is designed to provide a foundation for the next generation of investment managers, advisers and analysts.

Editorial Reviews

This book is a useful, timely and welcome addition to the real estate literature, and to my library. While recognising that approaches to investment strategy in real estate are as diverse as the asset class, the book provides a compelling and accessible case for a 'top-down' approach that should offer a useful and thought provoking reference for both students and practitioners.

Paul Kennedy


This edition, like the others, is enriched by Baum's years and breadth of investment experience. The chapters are a lovely mix of theory and practical experience and the analysis is on the cutting edge of commercial real estate portfolio management today. Baum is effusive in thanking his colleagues for their assistance but I believe that only Andrew Baum could craft a book like this – a comprehensible piece of scholarship.

As an international real estate fund manager, I found this new edition of Real Estate Investment not only provides technical knowledge but also practical examples and case studies which are extremely relevant and essential to the decision making process of real estate professionals with a global prospective . To me, this book is the bible of real estate investment.
