An easy way to access a diversified portfolio of listed Australian real estate
The appeal of Australian real estate has been built on the stability of the income it provides. Although capital values can rise and fall, the yields from rents have proven to be extremely consistent. The Listed Real Estate Trusts Fund provides investors with access to property and property related securities listed primarily on the Australian Securities Exchange. The Fund invests in Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) and listed property securities, whose dominant business is property ownership, property funds management or property development.
"Australian REITs are in a much stronger financial position today as they concentrate on clearly defined sectors of the market which generate reliable income streams."Mark Ferguson, Head of Australian Listed Real Estate
Investors benefit from a well-diversified portfolio of property and property related securities in the Australian market. These investments provide the opportunity to take advantage of the strong performance of the Australian economy.
Investing in listed real estate trusts provides greater liquidity than investing in direct real estate. The Fund is able to make tactical movements to take advantage of market opportunities, providing the potential for greater income and capital growth.
By actively managing the Fund, we are able to act on market opportunities as they arise and where we have a high conviction in the performance potential of specific companies.
