A Direct Property Investment commonly describes real estate investments that can be held either directly (direct ownership on the title) or indirectly through collective ownership vehicles such as managed property investments: funds, trusts and syndicates (Listed or Unlisted Property Funds). Such investments can be commercial, industrial, retail, bulky goods, residential or a range of other property assets.
Investors in Direct Property Investment Funds are wholesale and retail investors and include Self Managed Superannuation Fund investors (‘SMSF’).
Over the last two decades, Direct Property Investment has grown dramatically, becoming a core investment class for the growth of wealth through strong risk adjusted returns, while also providing a stable source of income through regular distributions of underlying rental income.
Professionally managed Unlisted Property Investments is an alternative form of direct property investment. Unlisted Property Investments can also be called funds, trusts, syndicates and schemes.
It works by investors purchasing ‘units’ in a trust that holds investment property or properties, which are managed by a professional investment manager like Terraplex. An Unlisted Property Fund has a fixed investment term and transparent investment purpose.
The initial capital remains invested until the property asset(s) is sold when the trust ends, with any net proceeds distributed among the investors. Throughout the life of the trust, investors also receive income distributions that are paid regularly – such as monthly or quarterly.
Properties utilised for the investment are chosen by the investment manager and bought by the trust. The investment manager then manages the associated maintenance, administration and rent collection.
Returns from Unlisted Property Investments are typically less volatile for investors, compared to A-REITs, and are known for providing a consistent inflation-linked income stream.
Purchasing Commercial property via an unlisted property fund as a part of your investing portfolio can bring huge benefits.
It allows you access to a share of a high quality property that’s typically only available to institutions, and provides exposure normally only experienced by professional management teams.
Unlisted property doesn’t offer liquidity, however investors can receive stable returns that combine a stable yield and the potential for capital growth. Such returns are closely linked to underlying property assets in the trust, and tend not to be highly correlated with other asset classes, such as shares, which can be utilised to diversify your SMSF or investment portfolio.
These investments can also offer greater certainty on income, due to the locked-in nature of commercial leases. Unlisted Property also tends to be a good hedge against inflation because lease payment increases are usually inflation-linked or have fixed increases of 3-5%.
Terraplex have generated excellent returns for many investors utilising Unlisted Property Funds. We offer property investors the focus, energy and commitment of a ‘boutique’ fund manager, whilst providing institutional grade reporting and deal sourcing capabilities.
For both international and domestic investors, investing via unit trust is an efficient way to achieve tax-effective investment property ownership.
The upside for any off-shore investor seeking to purchase a commercial property investment is the fact that Australia has a well-structured regulatory environment.
Each year, we provide property investors locally and globally with access to Australian real estate investment opportunities. We’re driven in our objectives to provide superior returns and sustainable income. As well as strong capital growth through prudent acquisition and active management.
