The fund is invested in high-quality properties that can deliver a good return over time. We invest in office and retail properties in selected cities around the world, and in logistics properties that are part of global distribution networks.
We buy assets to hold for the long term, but some portfolios have assets earmarked for sale from the time of acquisition. Assets may also display different risk and return dynamics over time than initially expected or may fall outside of a slowly evolving strategy.
The return on unlisted real estate investments depends on rental income, operating costs, changes in the value of properties and debt, movements in exchange rates, and transaction costs for property purchases. More information on the return on real estate investments is available on our returns page, and in the fund's annual reporting.
