What we believe

QIC’s real estate team believes in active management and value-add over the long term by managing every aspect of the investment lifecycle. Our focus is on investment return – we have an acquisition mandate, but maintain a disciplined approach to identify best opportunities. By taking a holistic view of our assets over their lifecycle we are able to identify opportunities to add maximum value. We are committed to transparency, open communication and strong governance in an asset class where it really counts. 

Our development program has consistently added value and set the standard for the market. We continue to deliver strong results due to the experience of our leadership team and our diversified and resilient property portfolio.  


We are known for our discipline, consistent returns and focus. Our team of real estate 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.
