Why should I make a commercial property investment?

Commercial property can help to bring diversification to your investment portfolio. Diversification helps to lower your overall risk and helps in achieving more stable returns.

Diversification is a great strategy against a single investment volatility or one asset class performing poorly (e.g. a fund manager failing or a collapse in the share market).

With market movements happening all the time, diversification can help to flatten out the overall performance of your portfolio i.e. when some decrease in value, others may increase and balance out the fall. Overall, diversification lowers the risk to your portfolio performance as no matter what happens in the economy, some investments are likely to benefit.

Commercial property investment is underpinned by the tenants who pay rent to the owners of the building – in Centuria’s case, that would be the fund. The profit on the rent is then distributed to the owners of the fund in the form of distributions.

What this means is that the relationship with and quality of the tenants are paramount. In Centuria’s case, we believe this to be a real point of difference in our acquisition strategy and our preference to actively manage our buildings.

We recommend talking to your financial adviser to evaluate your risk profile and whether a commercial property investment would be right for your investment strategy. You should also read the offer document for more information on investment considerations and risks relevant to the financial product.
