What is an A-REIT?

Discover how Sentinel Property Group can help you invest in REITs

An A-REIT (Australian Real Estate Investment Trust) is an unlisted Australian wholesale property fund which provides investors with the opportunity to invest in large commercial property assets that they would not normally have access to on their own.

The appeal of A-REITs is that they open up investments to more people in large-scale commercial properties, such as shopping centres, office buildings or industrial real estate. A-REITs are growing in popularity as an investment choice in Australia as they enable savvy investors to diversify and tap into the strong and consistent income stream on offer in the commercial property sector.

Sentinel Property Group, is at the forefront of this trend and offers a range of property investment funds which cater for sophisticated investors who want to access the benefits of direct commercial property and enjoy the regular superior returns on offer in commercial real estate.

Sentinel’s dedicated team of property experts ensures our real estate investment trusts provide investors with exposure to high-quality commercial properties with strong returns, solid tenants, long-term leases and excellent potential for future capital growth.

The focus of Sentinel REITS is on opportunistic buying of commercial property assets. Unlike popular forms of residential real estate (like apartment buildings), our investment strategies involve buying what other investment trust companies don’t want or don’t see the inherent value in. We then work hard to maximise returns for investors through active hands-on management and strategic value-adding.

Sentinel caters for sophisticated investors and Self Managed Super Funds (SMSFs) by allowing them to pool their money in real estate investment trusts and then collectively invest in large commercial property assets such as retail shopping centres, commercial offices, healthcare real estate and industrial buildings.

Australian REITs provide exposure to the value of the real estate assets that the trust owns and the accompanying capital growth, as well as the ongoing, regular rental income. A-REITs typically specialise in particular sectors such as industrial trusts, office trusts, retail trusts, hotel and leisure trusts as well as diversified trusts.
Sentinel is Australia’s commercial real estate investing leader, having successfully built a national portfolio of high performing real estate investment trusts with the following real estate property types:

  • Retail
  • Industrial
  • Commercial Office Space
  • Land
  • Tourism infrastructure
  • Agribusiness

Investing in REITs is ideal for investors and SMSFs looking at investing in commercial real estate that would ordinarily be out of their financial reach due to the large amounts required for an individual investment.

Why invest in a commercial REIT with Sentinel?

Capitalising on more than 20 years of high-level experience of Sentinel Property Group founder and commercial property leader Warren Ebert, Sentinel has built our success on being a ‘first mover’ that is ahead of the game. We are always looking to buy in sectors that are out of favour with the majority, including other real estate investment trusts.

Commercial property can be generally underrated as an investment class but not by those who enjoy the dependable returns it can deliver via the right REIT investment. It may not capture the headlines of off-the-plan apartment purchases or the stock market but commercial property investment, when done right, consistently outperforms its competitors.

Sentinel’s real estate investment trusts are consistently ranked as the best performing A-REITs of their kind in Australia and are ideal for sophisticated high net worth investors and Self Managed Super Funds. For anyone looking at investing in an Australia REIT, look no further than Sentinel Property Group.

Unlike publicly traded equity REITs, Sentinel’s property portfolio boasts high-quality tenant covenants and solid-long term rental returns which individual property investors could not gain exposure to on their own. Our real estate trust investments are spread across a wide range of Australian Stock Exchange (ASX)-listed companies who are tenants in our secure commercial property assets.
