Manager's Commentary

Market Commentary

Despite increasing expectations of higher interest rates, the New Zealand (NZ) Property index market delivered a positive return over the June quarter, beating the more modest returns from the broader NZ equity market but lagging the very strong returns of both the broader Australian and Global equity markets.  NZ is seeing a very strong economic recovery in line with its’ global counterparts, driven by an employment recovery, government stimulus and low interest rates.

Portfolio Performance

Summer Listed Property delivered a return of 2.87% for the June quarter. 

Key contributors to outperformance over the quarter were out of index exposures in Charter Hall Group, Mirvac Group, CDL Investments, Centuria Industrial REIT, and Rural Funds group. Material detractors to performance included out of index exposures in Ryman Healthcare and Lendlease, and underweight exposures in Argosy Property and Goodman Property Trust.


We continue to rotate away from the NZ property index with almost 20% of the portfolio invested out of this core index.  We have positioned the fund for inflation/higher interest rates and a continued V shaped economic recovery. Unprecedented fiscal & monetary stimulus have delivered labour and housing outcomes far exceeding initial expectations. To capitalise on this momentum we have added modest exposure to housing, construction, and civil exposed names.  We have funded this by selling core NZ property index names that have some inflation protection from rising rents, but tend to lag the downside we expect to see from the more immediate impact of rising interest rates.  We continue to believe these names plus some aged care stocks and Australian property stocks (particularly the ones with more fund manager type credential such as Charter Hall Group) offer better value than pure NZ rent collecting stocks at this stage in the cycle.  Our preferred NZ property stocks are Asset Plus, Stride Property Group, and Vital Healthcare Property Trust.

We actively manage the fund’s foreign currency exposures. As at 30 June 2021, the fund’s foreign currency exposures represented 14.18% of the value of the fund. After allowing for foreign currency hedges in place, approximately 9.62% of the value of the fund was unhedged and exposed to foreign currency risk.
