The AMP Capital US Plus Property Fund (Fund) invests in a strategic mix of direct property assets in the United States of America (US). These assets are intended to be diversified across the office, retail, industrial and multifamily1 sectors once the Fund reaches critical mass.
The Fund invests in ‘core’ and ‘core-plus’ property. Core assets are those considered to have secure and low risk cash flows over the medium to long-term. Core-plus assets require active asset management over a period of time to become core assets.
Opportunity for exposure to US direct property investments across the office, retail, industrial and multifamily sectors. This is provided via an efficient holding structure, with the option of having your investment unhedged or hedged back to Australian dollars.
The fund offers investors an opportunity to diversify their domestic real estate portfolio to include a US exposure, diversified by sector (including the US multifamily sector) with a research-driven portfolio construction approach.
Investors benefit from our strong relationship with our local property partner in the US. Alongside the AMP Capital team, our US partner drives the origination and ongoing management of assets within the portfolio. The relationship with our US partner is well established and has delivered excellent outcomes for investors to date.
