A diversified commercial property fund with a focus on income
Adding quality commercial properties to your portfolio is a great way to diversify and seek to receive regular income but you usually need to be a large institutional investor to do so. With the Wholesale Australian Property Fund, you can invest in a diversified portfolio of quality Australian office, retail and industrial properties. The Fund aims to provide stable returns, made up primarily of income with some long-term capital growth. It targets assets which have high occupancy rates and stable income streams underpinned by leases to long-term, secure commercial tenants.
“The fund aims to provide bite-sized access to a large and diversified commercial property portfolio usually out of reach for smaller investors."Chris Davitt, Fund Manager
The Fund provides investors with the opportunity to invest in an established portfolio of office, retail and industrial properties which are occupied by corporate and government tenants.
The Fund is open-ended allowing investors to choose when they invest. It also provides investors with access to a usually unaffordable asset class using low levels of debt to reduce risk.
Our teams have expertise across all areas of property investment including investment research, property management, leasing, capital transactions, development and funds management.
