With the US Federal Reserve looking to cut interest rates, the backdrop for real estate stocks is more favourable. Our focus remains on companies with solid balance sheets that can grow rents at or above inflation. We expect to see a continued divergence in performance between high-quality Grade A real estate versus Grade B assets.

Fund Summary
We seek to make well-timed investments in undervalued real estate companies, favouring high quality real estate in land-constrained markets. We aim to identify real estate with a high asset base potential to build a well-diversified portfolio. The promotion of environmental and/or social characteristics is achieved through the fund's commitment to maintain at least 10% of the value of its portfolio invested in Sustainable Investments, as defined by the SFDR. Additionally, we apply a proprietary responsible screen (exclusion list). The manager is not constrained by the fund’s benchmark, which is used for performance comparison purposes only.

30-Apr-2024 - Jai Kapadia, Portfolio Manager,
Global real estate stocks produced negative results in April, weighed down by rising yields in the US. Within the portfolio, stock selection in Australia helped performance. Our positions in a high-quality retail real estate investment trust (REIT) and a global industrial REIT held up better than their peers in a down market. Stock selection also added value in Japan, where our positions in a hotel REIT and a multi-family residential REIT produced small gains amid a broadly negative backdrop. A small non-benchmark allocation to India further supported results. Conversely, stock selection in the US hampered performance. Our position in a global industrial REIT underperformed after the company’s management reduced its earnings guidance for the year amid weaker-than-expected demand in the first quarter. In addition, a position in a data centre operator weighed on results. The company’s shares remained under pressure after a research firm accused the company in March of manipulating key metrics. We maintain a positive view of the company and increased our position. Our position in an industrial REIT focused on coastal markets also held back returns.
30-Jun-2022 - Jai Kapadia, Portfolio Manager ,

During the quarter, we remained focused on companies with quality properties, strong management teams, and solid balance sheets. We have overweight positions in market segments that we expect to benefit from their pricing power, such as lodging, apartments, industrial, and self-storage REITs. We took advantage of the downturn in industrial names following Amazon's announcement that it will slow its pace of leasing warehouse space and added to our positions in the sector. We believe that there is more than enough demand available from other sources to absorb any excess capacity created by Amazon's pullback. Additionally, there is a scarcity of city center industrial land, which is necessary for same-day delivery.

United States

The largest absolute weight in the portfolio and benchmark is in the United States, the largest and most mature market within commercial real estate.

  • Prologis, an industrial property landlord with significant global scale, remained the portfolio's largest holding, and we added to our position to take advantage of more attractive valuations during the period. We believe that the company is well positioned to benefit from supply chain reconfiguration and growth in e-commerce, and its focus on faster-growing markets could drive above-average rental growth.
  • We initiated a position in American Homes 4 Rent, which is focused on single family home rentals. We believe a lack of housing supply should drive continued strength in single family rental rates, and we like the sector's relatively defensive characteristics.
  • We eliminated our positions in student housing provider American Campus Communities and industrial REIT PS Business Parks, both of which agreed to takeover offers from affiliates of Blackstone Group.


We have a significant weighting in Japan. We believe Japanese real estate stocks should benefit from a lifting of coronavirus-related restrictions as well as the Bank of Japan's commitment to a very accommodative monetary policy.

  • We added to Mitsui Fudosan, our largest position in Japan. The company, which develops and owns numerous office, housing, and retail properties, has made progress in improving shareholder returns via dividends, share buybacks, and the removal of cross-holding shares.
  • We initiated a position in Katitas, a company focused on renovating and reselling detached housing. We believe the company can gain market share in a fragmented used-home market, with limited competitive pressures. ���

United Kingdom���

We have a large allocation to the United Kingdom. In our view, London remains an attractive global city for companies, employees, and real estate investors alike.

  • We added to our position in Intercontinental Hotels, one of the world's largest hotel operators, amid attractive valuations. We believe the company should benefit from an accelerated pace of new unit growth, and we like InterContinental's asset-light model, which should provide some protection against wage inflation.
  • Derwent London and Great Portland Estates represent our largest positions in the UK. We have a positive view on Grade A office landlords given green buildings are in high demand.

Continental Europe

We adjusted our positioning in Europe.

  • In Belgium, we took advantage of the recent downturn in industrial REITs and initiated a position in Warehouses de Pauw, which owns industrial warehouses across Europe. The company's leases are linked to inflation, and the limited availability of supply in its markets should be beneficial.
  • We reduced our position in Vonovia, a company that owns a large portfolio of multifamily residential properties in Germany. In our view, high interest rates and rent controls would make it difficult for Vonovia to grow earnings above inflation.
