Asset Management

Asset Management

Our asset management division, MA Asset Management, oversees institutional, wholesale and retail investments across real estate, credit, hospitality, private equity and venture capital. The team also manages traditional asset classes such as cash, bonds and listed equities.

Asset Management

Launched in 2013, MA Asset Management has $6.1 billion in assets under management.

With our boutique size and flat structure, we remain nimble – ready to respond to opportunities as the market presents.

Thinking and acting like principal investors and owners, we seek opportunities we invest in ourselves, co-investing as a firm and as employees in our own funds.

By focusing on asset classes in which we have deep expertise and where we see value, we only pursue investments on an appropriate risk-adjusted basis, and always with an absolute return focus.

Significant Investor Visa

As one of Australia’s largest Significant Investor Visa (SIV) fund managers, we offer complying investment solutions for investors in the SIV program; a federal government initiative designed to attract high-net-worth individuals seeking investment migration to Australia.

Expertise

Real estate

Real estate

Currently managing $3.8 billion in real-estate assets across Australia, our expertise runs deep. 

We specialise in creating and managing real estate investments for sovereign funds and institutional, high-net-worth and retail investors. We focus on income surety and asset growth performance during periods of economic growth; mitigating negative performance and minimising risk during downturns.

Drawing on the insights of our Equities Research and Real Estate Corporate Advisory teams, every decision made is based on a thorough analysis of market data and investment trends.

The team manages core and operating real estate assets across a range of sectors including hotel, commercial, retail, aged care, childcare facilities and industrial. Other capabilities include active lease management, repositioning assets, and overseeing substantial capital programs.

We have significant financial advisory and capital markets experience in real estate and REITs, advising some of Australia’s largest real estate companies. In 2018, MA Financial Group was among the most active real estate advisory and equity capital market investment banks in Australia; ranked #4 in real estate M&A advisory, and #2 in real estate equity capital market activity.

Credit

Credit

Managing over $1.3 billion in real estate and non-real estate credit products, we have deep experience in providing credit to borrowers and structuring transactions across a range of asset classes and economic conditions.

In addition to specialising in providing credit to borrowers, we have a broad background in real estate, including valuation, construction, financing, operating and asset management. All of which provides us with a differentiated approach to structuring our credit product.

We finance investment in senior secured, mezzanine debt and equity facilities; identifying and capitalising on emerging trends to create innovative credit products.

Our expertise across both credit and real estate means we understand underlying real estate security; able to structure real estate credit exposure to protect downside risk and maximise risk-adjusted returns. Our loan investments are actively managed, with the necessary experience to take control and maximise the value of our securities.

Having managed some of the most complex restructuring and debt transactions in Australia, our debt advisory team within Corporate Advisory complements this expertise. This wellspring of diversified experience across the firm empowers our investment team with holistic, far-reaching views of credit opportunities.
