1 1 Market Efficiency in the Emerging Securitized Real Estate Markets Felix Schindler Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW) Milan, 26 th of June 2010

2 2 Motivation Does the hypothesis of market efficiency hold for emerging securitized real estate markets? While focus has largely been placed on analyzing market efficiency with respect to international stock markets and other asset markets, there is comparably little research conducted on securitized real estate markets. It is well documented in financial literature that emerging markets are less efficient than more developed / matured markets. Existing research on this topic in real estate mainly focuses on the U.S. real estate stock market and is often based on the analysis of individual stocks. To our knowledge, no study explicitly analyzes market efficiency in emerging securitized real estate markets.

4 4 Relevant Literature Research is predominantly conducted on the U.S. market and for individual REITs or direct real estate; see e.g. Graff and Young (1997), Jirasakuldech and Knight (2005), Kuhle and Alvayay (2000), Mei and Gao (1995), Nelling and Gyourko (1998), Seck (1996). Research on international real estate markets: Kleiman et al. (2002), Schindler et al. (2009), Serrano and Hoesli (2009), Stevenson (2002). Conclusion of previous research results: mixed results, which might depend on the analyzed market, time period, and applied methodology (autocorrelation, variance ratios, runs, momentum, ARMA-GARCH-models, etc.).

6 6 Market efficiency is analyzed by focusing on the information contained in historical time series and the random walk model (joint hypothesis test). The following statistical tests are applied: –Autocorrelation test –Variance ratio test (heteroscedasticity-robust estimators) –Multiple variance ratio test (heteroscedasticity-robust estimators) –Runs test (direct test and less restrictive in its assumptions than tests above) Lead and lag structures of other time series and determinants are not considered.

12 12 Clear ex-ante declaration of the position in the market and the trading guideline. Applying the same information set as for the statistical tests. Objective and restrictive decision criteria. Keep it simple! Trading Strategy Requirements Outline Literature Methodology Data Description Empirical Results Trading Strategy Conclusion Appendix I I I I I I I I

13 13 Feasible investment opportunity into the national securitized real estate indices. No market impact by individual investors. Sufficient liquidity in the markets. Tax effects, bid-ask spreads, and transaction costs are not considered. Two different trading strategies are applied: Without short selling With short selling Further Requirements Related to the Market Structure Outline Literature Methodology Data Description Empirical Results Trading Strategy Conclusion Appendix I I I I I I I I

14 14 The imposed restrictions are mainly carried out by a technical analysis based on moving averages (criticism: choice of moving average). Announced trading strategy: Invest into the national securitized real estate market (long position), if index level is above the moving average, otherwise do not invest or short the index.

17 17 The hypothesis of weak-form market efficiency cannot be rejected for most emerging securitized real estate markets. The statistical test results are supported from technical analysis. Excess returns compared to a buy-and-hold strategy seem to be limited compared to matured markets and are weakly significant only. The results are in contrast to the findings by Schindler et al. (2009) and Serrano and Hoesli (2009) for mainly matured markets. Thus, the often stated hypothesis in financial literature that emerging markets are less efficient than matured markets is of limited validity for securitized real estate markets!

22 22 The examination of the random walk hypothesis in its weakest form is often conducted by analyzing autocorrelation, whereas the assumption of independence between lagged returns is reduced to uncorrelated lagged returns: Test statistic: Autocorrelation Test with: k = lag / degree of freedom,  (k) = autocorrelation coefficient of order k.

23 23 Variance Ratio Test The approach suggested by Lo and MacKinlay (1988) tests the linearity of the variance of the return series related to the lag structure: with:q = lag. Given the validity of the random walk hypothesis, the variance ratio of the unbiased estimator of the variance is one: Outline Literature Methodology Data Description Empirical Results Trading Strategy Conclusion Appendix I I I I I I I I

24 24 In the Bernoulli-case, the expected value of the runs is defined by: with:n= number of observation, N runs = number of runs,  = probability.
