Investment Approach

Camlen Property Group’s objective is to source attractive real estate investment opportunities for wholesale and sophisticated investors that deliver strong risk adjusted returns. Through our extensive network of industry relationships, we are able provide investors with access to commercial real estate investment opportunities that are not presented to the broader market.

Camlen Property Group is focussed on acquiring assets that provide the potential for strong value creation opportunities and that also exhibit attributes that provide investors with strong down-side risk protection. Camlen Property Group develops a bespoke investment strategy for each asset which includes:

  • A detailed analysis of potential risks and the development and implementation of appropriate mitigants;
  • Available opportunities to add value through active management, including enhancing passing income, extending the assets lease expiry profile, undertaking refurbishment and re-leasing programs, improving the assets environmental credentials or undertaking a site rezoning;
  • Securing an appropriate level of debt funding and hedging interest rate risk; and development of a clearly defined exit strategy / strategies.

Each of our investments are structured as simple, single asset, unregistered unit trust which enables the introduction of non-recourse debt financing. Each trust will be established for a fixed investment term ensuring a defined redemption period.

Camlen Property Group actively seeks to align our interests with those of our investors through ensuring our remuneration is largely based upon performance fees above a predetermined return hurdle, rather than through excessive base management fees.

In order to invest with us, investors must qualify as a ‘wholesale client’, defined as including:

  • Investors (individuals and their associated controlled entities) who have net assets of at least $2.5 million or have a gross income in each of the last 2 financial years of at least $250,000 and provide a certificate issued by a qualified accountant certifying this.
  • Investors (individuals and their associated controlled entities) that invest at least $500,000 or more at the one time.
