The Freehold Australian Property Fund is a hybrid portfolio comprising a 50% benchmark allocation to the Freehold A-REITs & Listed Infrastructure Fund and 50% unlisted property & infrastructure funds. The target gearing range across the fund is 30-40%.
Details about the investment approach for the listed component of the Fund can be found in the Freehold Listed A-REIT & Infrastructure Fund section.
The unlisted component of the Fund is invested primarily in institutional grade core assets, including infrastructure. Additionally, there is some limited exposure to higher returning value add and development assets. There is a defined 4-step investment process to select the unlisted funds, involving fund/manager search criteria and a proprietary model using quantitative analysis to determine relative rankings.
The portfolio construction process for the Fund, which brings together the listed and unlisted sectors, considers factors such as liquidity, risk, number of positions and unlisted fund structure.
The Freehold Australian Property Fund aims to provide investors with a combined return of recurring income, derived from either long term rental leases or a contracted nature, and enhanced returns from selected value add and development assets with some gearing.
