Dr Yu-Cheng Lin has expertise in multiple property sectors of Real Estate Investment Trusts in the Pacific Rim region. His research agenda is highly connected to the real estate industry and features a high level of real estate market awareness, with a strong Asia-Pacific focus. This has covered the assessment of added-value and strategic role of multiple real estate sectors of REITs (e.g. office, retail, industrial and logistics, residential, healthcare, hotel, infrastructure, data centre sectors) in institutional investors' multi-asset portfolios (e.g. PE funds, insurers, pension funds, SWFs), as well as varying interest rate sensitivity of multiple real estate sectors of REITs across the USA, Japan, Australia and Singapore. The interest rate sensitivity analyses on multiple real estate sectors of REITs are particularly important for investors and lenders' understanding of interest rate risk management for multiple types of REITs in local and international investment portfolios, given the growth of refinancing capitals and newly troubled loans during the COVID pandemic. 

The significance and practical use of his PhD program have been externally validated by four SSCI real estate journal articles (as primary author), seven major international real estate conference papers and three media articles for the UK online real estate magazine-The Property Chronicle. These journal articles include (1) strong performance of Logistics in the Pacific Rim region (2020); (2) varying interest rate sensitivity of multiple real estate sectors of REITs in the Pacific Rim region (2021); (3) strong performance of BtR sector in Japan (residential J-REITs) (2019); and (4) strong performance of multiple real estate sectors of REITs in Australia (2019). In particular, multiple real estate sectors of the country- and regional-based REIT indices and portfolio analyses were constructed and utilised in my PhD program, offering a fuller understanding of dynamic risk-return attributes of multiple real estate types of REIT portfolios in the Pacific Rim region from multi-dimensional investment perspectives - both investment performance and risk management dimensions. These publications offer insightful investment initiatives in multiple real estate sectors across the US, Japan, Australia and Singapore, as well as a strong testament to forecasting international real estate trends (e.g. logistics and BtR sectors, interest rate risk management).
