Investment

The right time to invest

As a result of the global financial crisis and stunted development, certain markets are facing supply shortages and high demand – with long lead times for development meaning that these markets are likely to experience protracted periods of stock shortage – in the process driving up rents and property values. In addition, despite the current concern about the European debt crisis, the Australian economy is expected to perform solidly over the next five years, underpinned by the commodities sector. This dynamic creates an opportunity for a strong upswing over the next five years, meaning the moment is prime for investment in Australian real estate.

Investment Strategy

The Fund’s core strategy is to maximize the returns to investors through actively managing a portfolio of Australian projects diversified by industry sector, geographic region and development partners. Focusing on exploiting opportunities arising from the capital constraints presently being experience by many participants in the market and by avoiding speculative projects, oversupplied markets and over-geared/over- engineered funding structures, Sunfire Australian Real Estate Fund will target assets with strong fundamentals and appropriate risk/return profiles. In assessing all potential projects, Sunfire will seek to ensure that robust property fundamentals are met, only progressing with a potential project where it meets the Fund’s Investment Criteria and demonstrates clear value potential.
