About the A-REIT Fund

The Australian Real Estate Investment Trusts Fund (the A-REIT Fund) primarily invests in a portfolio of select Australian Real Estate Investment Trusts. The Fund aims to deliver a total return comprising income and capital growth, above the S&P/ASX 300 A-REIT Accumulation Index over the medium to long term.*

The Fund is best suited to the following investors,

  • SMSF trustees looking listed property exposure
  • Investors seeking a relatively high-yielding listed investment in a low interest rate environment
  • Retirees in draw-down looking for income but still seeking capital growth from markets
  • Accumulators with modest balances

Investment approach

The Fund primarily invests between 65-100% of assets in A-REITs, with the balance held in cash or similar investments and up to 25% of the Funds’ assets held in stocks outside the Index. Stocks may include but not limited to listed property companies (e.g. property developers and property fund managers), derivatives, listed securities such as real asset based infrastructure, aged care, retirement living and hotels. From time to time it may also include international property securities up to 10% of the Fund’s assets.
