Report: Qualitas considers listing of planned A$500M real estate income fund

Real estate investment management company Qualitas is planning to launch an up to A$500 million property income fund, The Australian reported.

The Melbourne-based company will seek a listing for the Qualitas Real Estate Income Fund on the Australian Securities Exchange, and is believed to have engaged Evans & Partners to spearhead the listing. Qualitas is targeting A$300 million from the listing, with additional capacity for A$200 million, the Aug. 9 report added.

The listed fund will invest in Qualitas senior and mezzanine debt funds and its other vehicles.

Qualitas is marketing the fund to potential investors as a vehicle that would yield minimum returns of 8% and give them exposure to real estate debt and equity plays on the exchange, according to the publication. The company is injecting A$10 million in capital into the fund, which has a gearing of 10%.

In one of the biggest-ever industrial portfolio deals Down Under, the investment manager purchased for A$388 million from Pacific Equity Partners 10 industrial properties through a sale-and-leaseback deal in April, and has approximately A$2 billion in capital under its management.
