What is a Sociedad de Inversion Inmobilaria?
A Sociedad inversion inmobiliaria (SII) is an investment vehicle under Panamanian law dedicated to the acquisition and development of real estate assets in Panama. SIIs are similar to real estate investment trusts, or REITs, in the United States. This vehicle provides a new investment opportunity for investors.
Main benefits of investing in a SII
The potential for a high return on investment—on a cash basis—relative to other investments due to the requirements for distribution of net taxable income, and the potential for capital appreciation.
Benefits of ownership of real estate with a greater degree of diversification and liquidity, and without the responsibility of direct management.
Greater tax efficiency than owning real estate directly.
