Monday 27 February: Resolution Capital Limited (Resolution Capital), the Australian based specialist real estate securities investment manager, achieved a significant milestone in December 2016, with the 10 year anniversary of the launch of its global investment strategy.
Over the 10 year time-frame, the Resolution Capital Global Property Securities Strategy (Unhedged) has delivered gross returns of 6.9% p.a., outperforming its benchmark by 4.2% p.a. and has delivered industry leading results globally versus peers.
Andrew Parsons, Managing Director of Resolution Capital, said: “In light of the high-water starting point and subsequent turbulent investment market conditions, we are particularly proud of the exceptionally strong absolute and relative returns. Our investment approach is deliberately unconventional, so the investment outcome is particularly pleasing considering the shift towards passive investment management.”
The portfolio typically contains 45 to 50 high quality listed global real estate securities, which meet Resolution Capital’s stringent selection criteria. The investment strategy focuses on avoiding permanent impairment of capital, in line with the objective of long term real wealth creation.
Marco Colantonio, Director and Global Portfolio Manager, said: “We are patient stewards of capital and the longer we invest, the more we appreciate the value of clearly articulating a strategy and remaining true to that philosophy through the cycle. We seek to allocate capital to property platforms which we judge are capable of delivering acceptable risk- adjusted returns together with high standards of corporate governance and balance sheet strength.”
