Australian Listed Property
Our Australian Property team, part of the Australian Equity boutique, bases its investment research on a strong valuation framework to fit an increasingly complex property investment environment.
The process utilises a range of proprietary valuation methodology, supplemented by third party research, a program of company visits, property inspections and macroeconomic analysis.
The BT Wholesale Property Securities Fund invests primarily in Australian listed property-related investments including listed property trusts, developers and infrastructure investments, both directly and indirectly. In addition, up to 15% of the Fund can be invested in international listed property-related investments and around 5% of the Fund will generally be invested in unlisted property investments. The Fund aims to provide a return (before fees, costs and taxes) that exceeds the S&P/ASX 300 A-REIT Accumulation Index over the medium to long term.
