Dexus to end management of $1.6 billion Australian Mandate portfolio
Staff reporterDecember 7, 2020

Dexus advises it will cease the management of the Australian Mandate, comprising a $1.6 billion property portfolio from June 30, 2020.

The diversified Australian Mandate comprises properties managed by Dexus on behalf of NSW Treasury Corporation (“TCorp”) for more than 30 years, and TCorp remains a long-term investor on the platform via other vehicles.

The Australian Mandate has achieved outperformance versus benchmark over 1, 3, 5, 7 and 10 years as at December 31, 2019.

Dexus’s funds management business has achieved significant growth since FY12 and has recently attracted new like-minded partners such as GIC and M&G Real Estate to invest alongside through the cycle.

There are currently several opportunities in the pipeline for Dexus to onboard investors with open investment periods and growth strategies.

The transition of the Australian Mandate is expected to have no impact on either Dexus's Adjusted Funds From Operations or distribution per security in FY20, with market guidance of distribution per security growth maintained at circa 5.5 per cent for the 12 months ended June 30, 2020.
