The fund aims to provide a total return primarily through investment in equity and debt securities of property companies worldwide. It trades property securities, such as real estate investment trusts (REITs) and listed property companies. This approach allows flexible access to commercial property markets in many countries, where it may be difficult and costly to benefit through buying property directly. Fund's global presence enables to take advantage of the world's varying property cycles rather than just relying on the real estate trends in one region.
