Shopping Centre Investment Review and Outlook - Australia, February 2013


Driven by portfolio sales and a number of large individual asset sales, retail investment activity across Australia rose to AUD 6.3 billion in 2012, in line with the all-time record high reached in 2003 and 84% above 2011 levels. The most prominent theme throughout 2012 and continuing into 2013, is the growing trend of capital partnering. Through strategic joint venture arrangements, a number of A-REIT’s have and continue to be able sell down partial shares in major core assets at book value or better, while retaining management rights, at an opportune time when there is significant pool of capital waiting to be deployed from a range of domestic and international sources. Throughout the remainder of 2013, we expect to see a continuation of these major transactions, with unlisted wholesale funds, superannuation funds, and offshore investors expected to lead major acquisitions as these groups continue to build scale within the sector while yields remain attractive.​
