  1. Hurdle Rates For Real Estate Investment Theory and Practice RICHARD BARKHAM September 2009

  2. AGENDA • Theoretical matters • Three approaches we (sometimes) use at Grosvenor • The ‘volatility’ approach • The ‘risk audit’ approach • The ‘market structure’ approach • Conclusions and observations • Afterword: dealing with development

  3. THEORETICAL ISSUES • Risk is the dispersion of potential outcomes around the expected value (ex ante); • Risk can be partitioned: • Market risk – affects all assets and so cannot be eliminated through diversification; • Specific risk – asset specific, uncorrelated with the market and does not contribute to the volatility of a portfolio.

  4. THEORETICAL ISSUES • The dominant theme of modern finance is that only market risk (beta in CAPM) is rewarded: • Specific risk can be eliminated by diversification an is not rewarded; • No real evidence that CAPM applies in the property market: • Include specific risks in hurdle rates; • But weight market risks higher than specific risks. • Financial markets research suggests that market risk (an asset’s beta) is governed by: • Operational gearing; • Sensitivity of asset’s cash flows to the business cycle.

  5. MARKET RISK FACTORS Tenant quality: Size Sector Multi-let B E T A Location Prime / secondary Freehold or leasehold interest Gearing Review patterns and break options Weighted average lease length Vacancy Current / expected as a % of rent passing Rental value Trend, cycle and shocks Relationship to rent passing Yield Initial / equivalent yield as % of forecast IRR

  6. SPECIFIC RISK FACTORS • Depreciation • Technical • Functional • Locational • Supply / competition • Tax / legislative change • Ground conditions (for developments) • Construction cost overshoot (for developments)

  7. THE VOLATILITY APPROACH Page 10

  8. THE VOLATILITY APPROACH • Estimate (or engineer) the equilibrium relationship between risk (volatility) and return in the UK property market • Create simulation models to project market outcomes over the next five to ten years • Rents, yields, rates of default, costs • Univariate time series models (ARIMA etc) • Linked with appropriate correlations • Subject base case cashflows simulated market outcomes • Measure (standard deviation) the range of IRR / NPV outcomes from simulated cashflows • Depends on market AND the income certainty of real estate cashflow • Use the risk return line to calculate the hurdle rate

  15. THE MARKET STRUCTURE APPROACH Page 18

  16. THE MARKET STRUCTURE APPROACH • Risk free rate • UK ten year gilt • Individual country rates leads to strange results e.g. Japan 1.3%, Australia 5.3% • Country risk • New York Stern University: Risk premium based on Moody’s ratings • Transparency risk • JLL market transparency index • Converted to premium with range 25bps to 125bps

  17. THE MARKET STRUCTURE APPROACH • Liquidity risk • Based on turnover as share of total and tradable market • Converted to premium with range of 50bps to 250bps • Business risk • Based on volatility of rents • Converted to premium with range 75bps to 125bps • Depreciation risk • Varies by sector based on academic findings • Office high, retail lower • Converted to risk premium 75bps to 125bps

  18. THE MARKET STRUCTURE APPROACH • Income risk • Security of income based on average lease length • DTZ data, converted to premium between 75bps to 125bps • UK has a low income risk

  22. CONCLUSIONS AND OBSERVATIONS • Utilise the insights of finance theory, but: • Include allowance for specific risk, particularly for development projects • Many different approaches: • ‘horses for courses’ • communication is important • Hurdle rates should be contra-cyclical • Process is as important as technique: • Business team buy-in (or coercion) • Hurdle rates set independently

  23. AFTERWORD: DEALING WITH DEVELOPMENT • Developers have some very interesting ideas on risk • Listen politely • Market risk in development is much higher than investment • But it can be hedged • Specific risk in development is also very high • Often very difficult to hedge or insure • Needs to be priced
