Sentinel, in turn, is very grateful for the continued support of its valued investors. With our most recently settled acquisitions in the past quarter, we have now passed the milestone of having more than $1billion in total assets under management.

Commercial property in general is beginning to gain a lot more attention from the wider investment community due to its out-performance of other investment vehicles. The unlisted commercial property investment sector in particular is now increasingly viewed as Australia’s best performing asset class, and Sentinel has the best performing funds within this sector. We continue […]
In addition to our highly targeted buying strategy, another key component of Sentinel’s success is our approach to financing, and in particular interest rates. We have received an avalanche of advice in recent years to lock in rates because of anticipated increases. As 2015 progressed, this advice from well-meaning investors, accountants and advisors, became more […]
Similar to our entry into tourism markets, we also see a lot of potential upside in gaining exposure to Australia’s agribusiness sector. We have settled our first agribusiness acquisition and are actively looking at further opportunities to grow our presence in this sector. The first asset for our new open-ended Sentinel Income Trust is the […]
A recent focus of our expansion has been on acquiring prominent assets in locations such as the Gold Coast and North Queensland that are well positioned to benefit from a rebounding tourism sector.

Geographically, we have further strengthened our presence in key regional locations, in particular North Queensland and western New South Wales. We also made our first acquisition on the Gold Coast, our first in Western Australia, and secured our second property […]
Against this global backdrop, Sentinel continues to power ahead by actively growing our exposure in our chosen markets and delivering outstanding returns for our investors. In the latest PCA/IPD index of the best performing unlisted retail property funds in Australia, we continue to dominate the Top 10 positions. We claimed the top three positions, and […]
From a big picture perspective, it is important to look beyond all the negative headlines in relation to the stock market, China, coal exports and the like. The press, and most of the public, get too easily consumed by negative sentiment, but take a closer look and you will find it is not all bad […]
