Simon Rooney, JLL’s Head of Retail Investments – Australasia, said this section of the market was strong.

“Major convenience-based shopping centres continue to generate strong interest from investors, given their exposure to more resilient retail categories such as grocery, F&B and retail services,” Rooney said.

“Buyers see relative value in retail assets given the widening spread to other asset classes and attractive income returns available for quality neighbourhood and sub-regional centres.

“Investors are opportunistically making tactical retail acquisitions to take advantage of the pricing disparity between sectors and individual assets.”

Transaction activity was highest in the $50 million-$150 million bracket in 2018, having increased 74%, on top of 47% growth already recorded in 2017, JLL said.

“Investors are targeting high-yielding neighbourhood and small and mid-sized sub-regional centres, such as Corio Central, with a major focus on retail services as well as F&B,” said Rooney.

“F&B has consistently been the fastest growing retail category over the last five, 10 and 20 years, which underpins solid leasing demand.”
