Implied Cap Rate


[ released September 11, 2020 ]

  • The Implied Cap Rate is the yield given by dividing the NOI (Net Operating Income) from managed properties by the Implied Value of a J-REIT. The Implied Value is the total of the market cap and debts of the J-REIT, and represents its acquisition value in the capital market.
  • In another word, the Implied Cap Rate represents the yield of NOI produced at a certain share price. It is used as a benchmark for the investment decision, and also as a hurdle rate for the J-REIT manager to compose their property portfolio.
