Property

Property generally forms part of a balanced portfolio and can be accessed via either the listed or unlisted markets or indeed through direct asset ownership. Relevant considerations are diversification, preference for income, long-term asset and liability matching and liquidity requirements.

Direct property can act as an important cornerstone in a balanced portfolio, offering diversification benefits, access to regular income and returns that are not correlated to listed assets.

Listed property provides most of the benefits of direct property investment with the added benefit of liquidity. Listed property can be traded on a stock exchange, and can provide investors with exposure to commercial, retail or industrial property assets.
