How to invest in industrial real estate

If you want to ride the wave of industrial property investing, there are a couple of different options available to you as an investor:

industrial buildings
Purchase a direct whole industrial property. This can be cost prohibitive to individual investors given the high value of assets.
fund managers
Property fund managers offer the ability to buy a “share” in an asset in the form of an industrial property fund – this usually has a minimum investment amount.
listed entities
Listed entities where you buy and sell securities/shares in a trust on the ASX (such as ASX:CIP).

Buying a direct property as a sole investor obviously would carry more risk due to the high cost of exposure to the individual property.

By investing via an unlisted property fund or in a listed REIT, you are placing your trust in the property fund manager and responsible entity. Property funds managers are regulated by ASIC and you should always make sure they have longevity and a strong track record.
