Unlisted Property Funds

An unlisted property fund is a form of direct property investment that provides investors the opportunity to gain access to commercial property assets through an investment in a fund. By investing in an unlisted property fund, investors will receive units in the fund/trust which holds the property assets that are managed by a professional property investment manager such as Centuria. Unlike listed property funds, unlisted property funds are not traded on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX). More information about unlisted property funds can be found below.

What are unlisted property funds?

Unlisted property funds can be categorised into two different structures:

  • Closed ended: In a closed-ended structure, investors will receive units at the commencement of the fund and generally cannot redeem until the underlying property is sold, proceeds are distributed and the fund is wound up. These are typically single asset funds and run for a fixed-term of 5-7 years. Centuria has a number of closed ended unlisted property funds that are typically single asset funds that invest in high value commercial property across Australia.
  • Open ended: In an open-ended structure, the property fund can continue to issue units and acquire new properties on an ongoing basis. The fund has a diversified portfolio of properties where there is no fixed-term of investment, meaning the fund remains open with no definite end date. Instead, investors are offered a liquidity facility where they can redeem part or all of their units in the fund at regular or certain times during the life of the fund. Centuria has one open ended unlisted property fund, the Centuria Diversified Property Fund (CDPF). The CDPF aims to provide monthly tax effective income and the potential for long term capital growth by investing (directly and indirectly via investments in unlisted property schemes which invest in direct property) in a diversified portfolio of predominantly office, industrial and retail properties located in Australia. The Fund has a target allocation to hold approximately 20% of its assets in liquid investments. These will consist of cash and ASX listed A-REITs. The CDPF pays monthly distributions, accepts daily applications and has a limited monthly liquidity facility.
The benefits of unlisted property funds are that they have the potential to provide investors with returns in the form of capital gains and regular distribution (rental) income. They also enable investors to gain exposure to the commercial property market at a relatively low entry point without the requirement to manage the properties themselves. The key things to consider when investing in unlisted property funds are the liquidity of the fund, the gearing of the properties in the fund and understanding the individual properties held by the fund and their characteristics. You should also consider whether this general information is appropriate for you and consult your financial or other professional advisor before investing.
