Scott Peters, president, CEO and chairman of Healthcare Trust of America (NYSE: HTA), joins NAREIT's Allen Kenney for a podcast to discuss the REIT's operating platform, business strategy and first year as a publicly traded company.

Healthcare Trust of America is a dedicated owner of medical office buildings. Peters gave an update on where the company stands a year after going public. He noted that the company's offering allowed it to go public without raising capital.

"We think that, within the health care sector, medical office has the lowest risk profile," he said.
