Listed property investments

The listed property market in South Africa allows us to invest in real estate investment trusts (Reits), which offer investors exposure to property-related opportunities on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE).

Listed property investments and
your portfolio

If you want to diversify from traditional asset classes, you can have exposure to the property market without the large capital outlays associated with property investments. When you invest in Reits, you will receive an annual dividend payment and capital growth over time. Share prices could be volatile in the short term, therefore you should have a long-term view beyond five years.

Our investing philosophy and process

The best way to achieve consistency of investment returns is to consider the full range of possible outcomes.

We invest in great property companies, at attractive valuations over a long-term investment horizon, using a fundamental research method. Our fundamental research process is dynamic and flexible. This allows us to continually improve our investment research, while staying true to our investing philosophy.

We believe that active investment research, supported by a disciplined investment process that focuses on risk management, is the cornerstone for superior investment returns.

Outcome-based investing

We place your investment needs at the centre of our investment process so that your financial goals are aligned to your investment outcomes.

Responsible investing

We define responsible investing (RI) as an investment process that includes environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into our process. Issues like increasing regulation, the growing need for risk mitigation and a heightened social conscience can be addressed by integrating ESG factors into our investment process.

Rules and regulations

Our property portfolios are compliant with Regulation 28 of the Pension Funds Act. In addition, the JSE has a set of requirements for Reits, including minimum dividend pay-out of 75% and loan-to-value ratio of 60%.

Financial Sector Conduct Authority (FSCA)
