Investment Approach

We are an active, bottom-up manager of Australian real estate and infrastructure securities. Our investment style is based on conducting fundamental research to estimate the relative value of real estate and infrastructure securities.

Investment Process

The portfolio is screened for pure property and infrastructure characteristics and has minimal exposure to development, currency risk and other 'active' earnings. Securities suitable for this strategy generally include a minimum of 90% of property rental income, recurring source or contracted/mature infrastructure income and have 75% of their assets located in Australia.

The competitive advantage of this strategy is the combination of listed property and infrastructure to deliver strong risk adjusted returns. These are achieved from an underlying asset base with similar characteristics expected from owning property, either through underlying leases to property tenants, or contracted or mature income streams derived from infrastructure or utilities agreements where the cash flows are highly predictable.

Given the highly predictable nature of these income streams, we would expect lower volatility from the customised stock universe than the broader ASX 300 AREIT universe.
