Propertylink is an internally managed real estate group specialising in Australian industrial and office investments with over $1.8 billion of assets under management
Propertylink’s wholly owned portfolio comprises a diverse set of industrial assets heavily exposed to Australia’s east coast infill locations where land supply is limited and occupier demand is strong. The portfolio generates stable income and strong returns through the predominance of prime quality assets.
Propertylink manages external funds investing in property across the Australian office and industrial sectors, providing global institutional investors with a fully integrated investment management platform and strong capabilities in the ownership and active management of real estate.
Invest in a portfolio of industrial properties in the major Australian markets that provide a stable and diversified earnings profile with potential income and capital growth. Co-invest in external funds, maintaining a target 5-25% share of equity and providing alignment of interests with global institutional investors along with the ability to share in the returns offered by the funds.
Enhance the portfolio of assets owned and held in external funds through active asset management. Leveraging Propertylink’s expertise as a skilled active manager of real estate, this is delivered through acquisitions, asset repositioning, targeted capital expenditure, development and divestments.
Grow the investment management business by expanding existing funds, securing new investment mandates, expanding our investment network and establishing new external funds while continuing to grow our wholly owned industrial portfolio to maintain a stable and diverse earnings profile.
Maintain a conservative capital structure across our balance sheet and external funds with a target balance sheet gearing range of 30% to 40%.
We have an outstanding team with deep expertise across the Australian real estate market, who are passionate about property and achieving great outcomes for our investors and tenants.
