Global Real Estate

Real estate has long been a part of institutional investors’ portfolios as a result of its ability to deliver long-term value enhancement, consistent yields and inflation protection. At QIC we look for quality assets, not quantity of deal flow, actively managing every aspect of the investment lifecycle. We have developed a reputation for delivering predictable outcomes for clients over the long term.

Global Real Estate
  • Who we are

    With over A$11 billion* invested in Australian and international retail and office assets, we have developed a reputation for delivering predictable outcomes for our clients over the long term. We are known for our discipline, consistent returns and focus. Long standing, reliable, stable and experienced, our team can see beyond the assets to what is possible. With 170* real estate professionals, we have true depth of expertise: from deal origination and execution to asset management, leasing, marketing and development.
    *As at 31 December 2013.

  • What we believe

    We believe in active management and value-add over the long term. We believe in the quality of assets not the quantity of deal flow. We believe in looking beyond â€’ in seeing potential even when it’s not obvious. We believe in maximising value by managing every aspect of the investment lifecycle. We have the vision to invest only when it’s right, to develop to optimise the asset, and to divest to maximise the outcome. We are truly aligned with our clients and do not believe in growth for growth’s sake. We are committed to transparency, open communication and strong governance in an asset class where it really counts.

  • What we do

    By taking a holistic view of our assets over their life cycle we are able to identify opportunities to add maximum value. Our discipline ensures that we answer to our process not the market. We will invest only when it’s right and are not distracted by market noise. We will divest to maximise the outcome, irrespective of sentiment. We see beyond our assets to what is possible. Our development program has consistently added value and set the standard for the market. This is how we produce outcomes. This is what makes us BEYOND PREDICTABLE.

Investment approach

Our team of property professionals has developed a long term strategic investment style that has been delivered over the years with conviction and discipline. Our direct and hands on approach enables us to maintain strategic control over our assets, while a strong development pipeline ensures we continue to provide strong returns to our clients.

Our strategic focus remains on dominant regional shopping centres located in town centre locations in growth corridors.

The acquisition and/or development of CBD office buildings is a tactical focus.

All strategic services performed in-house

We maintain strategic control of our properties by performing key functions in house, including asset management, leasing, finance and development. Non strategic functions such as design, project management and construction are tendered out. This provides strong risk management, as well as invaluable intelligence into market conditions.
