DEXUS Property Group (DEXUS) has posted a strong 2016 financial result.

Dexus are Australia's largest office landlord with 1.8 million sqm of office space under management.

They have grown their third party funds from $5.6 billion in FY12 to $11.2 billion.

“Four years ago we reset our strategy to focus our business on Australian office property and third party funds management," said DEXUS CEO Darren Steinberg.

"Over the past four years, we have improved our efficiency reducing our Management Expense Ratio from 67 basis points to 35 basis points.

"At the same time, we have continued to maintain a strong balance sheet, and with recent divestments this further strengthens our position.

“We have fostered a culture of innovation and continuous improvement, invested in our people to build their capabilities and enhanced our customers’ experience, delivering new products and services.

“We have expanded our development pipeline and identified trading opportunities, positioning the portfolio for future growth.

Darren said DEXUS are expecting to deliver a solid result in FY17 despite recent divestments.

"We expect underlying FFO per security to grow by 3.0-3.5 percent and distribution per security by 2.5-3.5 percent.”
