Heitman Global Prime Real Estate Trust
Global real estate investment management firm Heitman LLC has launched the Heitman Global Prime Real Estate Trust - a benchmark-unaware, diversified portfolio of publicly traded global real estate securities - in Australia.
Equity trustees has been appointed as trustee for the Australian vehicle which has already been seeded with a $128.5 million investment by a local superannuation fund.
The strategy provides investors exposure to property assets in global gateway markets and invests in multi-sector opportunities, transnational positioning, and specialised investment opportunities or niche industries servicing local regions.
“Heitman’s goal is to broaden its support of the real estate investment needs of Asia Pacific investors and to build our Australian presence,” Lewis Ingall, Heitman senior managing director, client service and marketing, said. “Growing Heitman’s investment offerings across Australia to meet increasing demand for institutional-quality real estate investment solutions is in line with this strategic initiative and the market will continue to play a vital role in the growth of our global operations.”
