Manager's comments

Market commentary  

September was another positive quarter for Listed Property investors, in general.

Portfolio positioning

The portfolio represents what we consider to be the optimal opportunity set in the New Zealand property sector.

Indeed, earlier this year we removed the fund’s exposure to key stocks within the Australian property sector and as at the end of September continue with only one Australian exposure – Leadlease Group – representing less than 2% of the value of the fund.

To diversify the fund’s exposure to the small number of New Zealand listed property vehicles we hold investments in the aged- care sector. As at September these were Arvida Group, Metlifecare and Ryman Healthcare and totaled around 5% of the value of the fund.


It is important that we acknowledge the departure of Malcolm Davie at the beginning of October, the portfolio manager of the Forsyth Barr Listed Property Fund since April 2014. He leaves with our gratitude and best wishes, with the intention of completing the final stages of his studies for his PhD.

Accordingly, we are pleased to announce the appointment of Jason Lindsay, AFA, who joins us from ACC, where he managed the Australasian infrastructure portfolio. Jason has over 15 years experience spanning New Zealand’s equity research and fund management industries. He holds a BCA from Victoria University of Wellington and is a member of Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CAANZ).

From October, Jason will be the portfolio manager of the Summer Listed Property and joined Craig Alexander as Co-Head of Funds Management on 10 September.

We actively manage the fund’s foreign currency exposures. As at 30 September 2019, these exposures represented 1.98% of the value of the fund and were unhedged.
