Appointment to former Perennial Trusts

Resolution Capital appointed investment manager of the former Perennial Real Estate Funds

Resolution Capital Limited (Resolution Capital), a specialist global real estate securities manager, has been appointed as the new investment manager to three former Perennial Real Estate funds effective 1 November 2014. The funds include both Australian and global real estate securities strategies.

Andrew Parsons, Managing Director of Resolution Capital, said “The appointment improves our client diversification and broadens our access to dealer group platforms. Most significantly, the transfer is recognition of our investment management credentials and reaffirms our commitment to Australian and global real estate securities investment management. With our appointment, we are pleased that it now also provides us with the opportunity to offer an unhedged global property securities fund to complement our existing AUD hedged fund.”

Resolution Capital’s award-winning investment team has a successful long-term track record in managing portfolios of listed property securities dating back to 1995. The 10-strong investment team has significant experience managing through various property cycles.

The firm won the Listed Property category in the 2013 Morningstar Awards and the Global REIT category in the 2014 Zenith/Professional Planner Awards.

The Resolution Capital Global Property Securities Fund, which is available to retail investors and financial advisers, has delivered absolute returns of 12.2% p.a. and outperformed its benchmark* by 5.3% p.a.^ since its inception more than five years ago.

“From the outset we listened to what investors wanted from listed real estate and sought to apply world’s best investment practices to our sector. We developed a simple but effective strategy: invest in a select number of the world’s best listed real estate platforms, not in the index. In an increasingly global economy, we focus on identifying best-of-breed operators in each property sector, not subject to geographic boundaries,” Andrew Parsons said.

The funds for which Resolution Capital has assumed investment management responsibility are:

  1. Resolution Capital Global Property Securities Fund (Hedged) – Series II (previously known as Perennial Hedged Global Property Wholesale Trust) 2
  2. Resolution Capital Global Property Securities Fund (Unhedged) – Series II (previously known as Perennial Unhedged Global Property Trust).
  3. Resolution Capital Core Plus Property Securities Fund – Series II (previously known as Perennial Australian Property Wholesale Trust).
