Our investment funds
Our Investment Approach
— Type of funds
We invest in both direct property (commercial real estate with value-add potential) and also deploy capital into high quality development projects.
Underpinning our investment approach is a commitment to maintaining the highest ethical standards and investment rigour, and always placing the interests of our investors first.
To date, we have invested over $448 million, across various real estate sectors including office, retail and medical, as well as into a number of residential development projects. Each fund is established as an unlisted, closed-end single asset unit trust with a clearly defined exit.
— Asset selection
Argus Property Partners is able to access a range of investment opportunities through a network of trusted intermediaries, as well as long-standing relationships with industry agents. Generally, these are off-market transaction opportunities.
Across each of our funds, the executive management team co-invests alongside investors, ensuring a strong alignment of interest. The business typically invests into the funds where there is capacity to do so, too.
Partnerships are central to the way Argus Property Partners operates. The most important partnership is the one which is formed with each of our investors.
Because of our boutique size, our success has relied on building a best-in-class network of support organisations, including book-keeping and accounting (Ellice Flint Group), audit (RSM Bird), unit registry (Boardroom), fund compliance (Compliance for Business) as well as the property managers and leasing teams who assist with the day-to-day management of our assets.
Transparency, through regular and detailed reporting, is a key benchmark at Argus Property Partners. All investors receive quarterly investment updates which provide a high-level of information about the asset, including both the good news and full disclosure where there are issues. In addition, all funds are subject to an independent annual audit process, with investors provided with audited annual reports at the end of each year.
We’re committed to ensuring our fees are fair and represent value for money. To the extent possible, fees are designed to be set at levels below our competitors and structured in a way to align our interests alongside our investors — most importantly through back-ended performance fees.
