The vast majority of our investors are self-managed superannuation funds and retirees. The role of the property allocation in their portfolios is to provide regular income and modest capital growth, to complement allocations to growth assets, such as equities.
Investments are in “core” property, rather than properties which require major restructuring or redevelopment. The emphasis is on the reliability of the income.
While capital gains are an objective, this is secondary to avoiding capital losses.
There is a thorough due diligence process which is set out on the website.
It is a truism that an investment property continues to produce income so long as the tenants’ businesses continue to thrive. This requires knowledge of the appropriate levels of occupancy costs for different tenant businesses in the locality. There may be capital expenditure required to ensure that tenants remain profitable.
Real estate is popular with lenders as security. As a result, first mortgage finance of commercial properties at modest gearing levels can attract low lender’s margins. Lenders are also appreciative of thorough due diligence.
These low margins can be used to enhance income to investors without increasing risk to unacceptable levels.
Many property funds, including listed REITs ran into problems during the GFC, due to a reliance on borrowed funds to pay up-front incentives to new tenants and to carry out essential capital works. Fawkner Property syndicates plan for tenant incentives and capex by raising sufficient capital and keeping distributions within the limits of adjusted funds from operations.
