Who it suits

  • is prepared to accept that listed property investments are very likely to have negative returns over the short to medium term
  • is prepared to accept very high levels of volatility in returns from year to year.

Listed Property Index performance

As at 31 March 20241


The Listed Property Index portfolio for Accumulation accounts recorded returns of 14.0% over the quarter and 30.3% over the year to March 2024, relative to the broader Australian share market index which returned 5.4% over the quarter and 14.3% over the year.

The rebound in AREIT valuations continued their strong momentum during the quarter across all sectors. Industrial REITs were the top performers year to date. The sector recorded strong rental growth, low vacancies and increased demand which help drive up valuations. Office continued to underperform other sectors as the adoption of hybrid working conditions is putting downward pressure on occupancy rates and landlord pricing power.
