The paper examined productivity changes for the Malaysian Real Estate Investment Trust (M-REITs) using a non-parametric approach of Malmquist Productivity Index (MPI) of Data Envelopment Analysis (MPI-DEA). Data was attained from M-REIT annual reports, Thomson Reuters Datastream and Osiris via Bureau Van Dijk for 2010-2014. The non-parametric approach of MPI-DEA examined the Total Factor Productivity Change (TFPCH), Technological Change (TECHCH), Efficiency Change (EFFCH), Pure Technical Efficiency Change (PEFFCH) and Scale Efficiency Change (SECH) indices. The result suggested Malaysian REIT have exhibited productivity regress except for the year 2013-2014. The decomposition of the productivity change index suggests that Malaysian REIT productivity were mainly due to efficiency change rather than technological change. The authors also examine the productivity progress or regress of different REIT characteristics. The findings suggested that for both Malaysian conventional and Islamic REITs’ productivity growth are mainly due to efficiency change.
