Ruizean Australian Property Fund

Overview of the fund

The Ruizean Australian Property fund is designed as a hybrid portfolio of listed and unlisted property and infrastructure securities. The benchmark comprises 50% A-REITs and Listed Infrastructure and 50% Unlisted Property and Infrastructure.

The listed securities portfolio has exposure to pure property & infrastructure assets with minimal development, currency risk and other ‘active’ earnings. The Portfolio aims to provide investors with a return underpinned by recurring income that is derived from either long-term rental leases or other long term contractual arrangements. The listed portfolio benchmark is derived from the S&P/ASX 300 A-REIT Accumulation Index and a subset of the S&P/ASX 200 Index infrastructure sub industries, as defined by the Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS), combined on a 70/30 basis.

The unlisted securities portfolio comprises primarily of institutional grade core assets, including infrastructure, in addition to limited exposure to higher returning assets. The resulting unlisted portfolio delivers a strong income stream with growth upside and contributes to a reduction in volatility of the overall portfolio returns. As a guide, typical asset allocation for the unlisted portion of the fund will be 70% Core, 20% Value Add and 10% Development.
