Summary In this paper, we investigate how real estate portfolio composition impacts earnings management (EM) of New Zealand listed property portfolios (NZ-LPPs). We employ a panel dataset containing accounting and property data for NZ-LPPs. The findings include: (1) the office property ratio of the real estate portfolio provides the highest incentive for LPPs to engage in EM; (2) LPPs with a higher ratio of industry are less likely to use accrual EM and real EM approaches based on property transactions; and (3) LPPs with a hospital focus prefer accrual EM, while LPPs with a retail focus prefer long-term accrual EM and sales manipulation.
