Benefits of investing in the Presima Global Property Securities Concentrated Fund
Access to Presima's investment expertise
Presima is a boutique investment manager exclusively focused on listed global property securities.
The Fund's investments are selected and managed using Presima's disciplined, research-driven investment approach. Presima believes:
Access to global property opportunities
Presima looks for listed property security investment opportunities from around the world for the Fund.
Listed property securities generally provide investors with access to more opportunities and greater diversification across countries, sectors and properties than property investments that aren't listed. The global property market is considered far more diversified than the Australian market.
The Fund typically invests in a concentrated portfolio of 30-40 listed property securities. It's diversified across countries, property sectors and securities. It would be difficult for an individual investor to efficiently construct and manage a similar portfolio.
Hedged to the Australian dollar
The Fund's currency exposures are hedged to the Australian dollar. This means the Fund's total returns reflect the returns from its listed global property security investments, rather than currency fluctuations.

Indicative asset allocation ranges
Currency management and hedging
The Fund's units are valued in Australian dollars but the Fund invests in assets located in other countries, so they are valued in different currencies. The Fund's exposure to international assets will be hedged to the Australian dollar. The intention is to hedge most foreign currency exposures relative to the Australian dollar in order to minimise currency impacts on returns, meaning that the value of an investment in the Fund will change mostly due to a change in asset values. The currency hedging overlay will be done using foreign exchange forward contracts (which will generally be rolled monthly) and currency futures contracts.
