About the option
The Direct Property option holds units in portfolios focused on core, high quality properties, mainly CBD office buildings and large shopping centres.
Returns for this option may come from both rental income and capital growth, including some refurbishment and development activity.
This option may be suitable for members with an investment timeframe of at least five years or someone whose financial situation allows a higher degree of risk. This option may also be suitable for those seeking a higher degree of flexibility and more control over their investments.
What are the option’s objectives?
- To outperform the return of the Australian direct property market (as measured by the Mercer Australian Unlisted Property Index [pre-tax]).
- To achieve returns after tax and fees that exceed the inflation rate (as measured by the CPI) by at least 3% per year.^
