Active asset management strategy

Seeking to selectively acquire assets located in major markets with a range of demand drivers and potential for operational upside

Fund overview

The Fund offers investors exposure to high-quality accommodation hotels located in major Australian cities, such as Melbourne and Sydney.

The Fund is targeting attractively priced hotels which benefit from a diverse range of corporate and leisure demand drivers, and which offer upside through operational efficiency improvements and potential cost savings.

We believe now is an opportune point in the cycle to enter the market. Many hotel owners currently face financial challenges including softening hotel investment yields, significant increases in finance costs and a generally more conservative credit environment. This presents opportunities for active managers to opportunistically acquire hotels at significant discounts to replacement value and on attractive stabilised yields.
