Why Invest?

There are many potential benefits from investing in commercial property.

Cash icon

Steady, sustainable income (with potential tax benefits)

Income is paid to investors quarterly and is typically sourced from the rent paid by tenants or net realised capital gains.
Capital Growth

Capital growth from rising property prices

Rising commercial property prices have been a feature of the Australian commercial property market over the past few years. One factor driving increased values and capitalisation rate compression is the strong investment market and interest from overseas buyers.
Low volitility

Low relative volatility and natural inflationary hedge

Unlike share markets, commercial property generally exhibits lower volatility over the long term. Property valuations and rental income are based on property and economic fundamentals.
Invest in big brands

Invest in big brands and quality tenants

Some of Australia’s most well-known brands lease Australian Unity properties, including Australian Federal and State governments, Telstra, Woolworths, ANZ, Myer, Coca Cola and Coles.
Low cost

Low cost access to commercial property

With a $5,000 minimum to invest, investing in commercial property with Australian Unity is accessible and easy for many investors.
Reputable property managers

One of Australia’s most reputable property managers

In 2013, Australian Unity was named the Direct Property Fund Manager of the Year. We were a finalist in 2014 and 2016.^

Expertise

Australian Unity has a track record of helping Australians to thrive by building wealth through quality investments.

When it comes to commercial property, we believe that market prices for property do not always reflect their fundamental value and there is opportunity to generate value through buying and selling well.

We also believe that by actively managing property assets, as well as applying focused capital management, we can optimise returns for investors.

We currently manage more than 65 properties across Australia, with collective funds under management of approximately $2.44 billion (as at 30 June 2017).
