Centuria Capital Group (Centuria) is an Australian Securities Exchange-listed specialist fund manager with $5.6 billion1 of assets under management. Centuria Property Funds Limited (ABN 11 086 553 639, AFSL 231149), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Centuria Capital Group (Centuria), is the Responsible Entity of the Centuria Diversified Property Fund (CDPF) (ARSN 611 510 699).
Centuria offers investments in listed and unlisted property across 70+ high quality office and industrial buildings around Australia. We are a relationship business, forging close connections with investors and actively managing properties to improve usability and attract and retain good tenants. We see this as our competitive advantage.
The unlisted business has a 20 year heritage and in that time, has completed 37 unlisted property funds1,6.
Centuria’s investment philosophy is founded on an active management approach to real estate where relationships are key and there is the potential for value to be added at all stages of the investment process (acquisition, ownership, management and disposal).
Centuria believes it has a particular strength in identifying assets that require intensive asset management to maximise returns and has an in-house team to deliver the requisite range of value-add services. Centuria does not try to predict broader macro economic trends but instead believes that an asset that is well acquired and actively managed will outperform a passive approach through the full economic cycle.
Centuria believes in a “hands-on” approach to managing property assets. Unlike a lot of property fund managers, Centuria does not outsource its property management to real estate agents (although property management may be outsourced in remote locations or for special purpose assets).
Centuria has a fundamental belief that it can deliver better returns from its property assets by having a closer relationship with the tenants and a better understanding of the buildings themselves.
The Centuria Diversified Property Fund (CDPF) invests in direct property, Centuria unlisted property funds, cash and an ASX-listed A-REIT as shown below. There are additional unitholders in Centuria’s unlisted property funds and CDPF’s investment effectively reflects a partial ownership of the underlying property assets.
*Asset allocation as at 31 March 2019
The CDPF targets to invest 80% of the fund in direct property (real property and units in Centuria unlisted property funds). Further information on these property assets are shown below:
