Resolution Capital has taken out the honour of Global REIT Fund Manager of the Year at the 2018 Professional Planner | Zenith Fund Awards.

This represents an unprecedented fifth consecutive win in the category, and comes soon after Resolution Capital Global Property Securities Fund (the Fund) marked its 10 year anniversary, on 30 September 2018.

The annual awards recognise excellence in funds management, as judged by Zenith’s robust methodology, which examines each manager’s investment philosophy, expertise of the investment team, investment process, portfolio construction, risk management and performance.

The Fund’s strategy is to offer exposure to liquid, high quality global real estate. This is achieved by selectively investing in securities in some of the world’s leading listed real estate platforms, typically in the form of Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs). These vehicles own and manage property weighted toward the world’s most desirable markets, including New York, San Francisco, London, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Berlin, Paris, Sydney and Melbourne.

Managing Director and Global Portfolio Manager, Andrew Parsons, said: “The win is extremely gratifying, and is testament to the aptitude and commitment of the entire Resolution Capital team. Resolution Capital has a bias to REITs which are more conservatively financially levered and management teams with high corporate governance standards. Combined with the underlying quality real estate, these traits have been the hallmark of our outstanding long-term investment returns.”

The Resolution Capital Global Property Securities Fund has produced a return of 10.4% p.a. net of fees since inception (30/09/08), outperforming the Benchmark* (7.4% p.a.).
