Key Features

About the Fund

The Charter Hall Maxim Property Securities Fund (formerly Folkestone Maxim A-REIT Securities Fund) is a high conviction, actively managed fund. 

It gives investors exposure to a mix of quality listed A-REITs that own assets across the retail, residential, commercial, industrial and real estate related social infrastructure sectors.

Investment objectives

The aim is to outperform the S&P/ASX 300 A-REIT Accumulation Index by 1.5% p.a. over rolling 3 year periods whilst also aiming to achieve a balance between growth in the value of your Units as well as income from your investment. The returns from the Fund are not guaranteed. 

The Charter Hall Maxim Property Securities Fund utilises a disciplined investment process combining in-depth fundamental research with disciplined portfolio construction and risk controls with the aim of adding consistent value over time. 

The basic premise of Charter Hall Maxim Property Securities Fund's investment philosophy is that there is a close relationship between the real estate market cycle and the economic cycle.

Investment process

The investment process begins with a top-down analysis of economic environment and each of the major real estate sectors and geographic sub-markets.

We believe the integration of quality research on the economic environment, capital markets and market pricing trends is critical to our decision making framework and gives us the ability to add value by identifying investment opportunities ahead of the market. 

The approach includes estimates of the listed property securities yield, the net present value, net tangible assets, and gearing. Qualitative factors are also evaluated, including asset quality and management. 

The combination of our research and proven investment process ensures we maintain our high conviction approach to the management of the Fund, and avoid being labelled an Index hugger.
