Market Commentary

The New Zealand listed property market index that we follow, posted a December quarter return of -0.39%. In the same period, the Summer Listed Property delivered a return of 0.65%, taking the 12-month return to 28.72%.

Portfolio Positioning

Summer Listed Property enjoyed a strong quarter in a relative sense outperforming the index by 0.25%. This out-performance was primarily due to holding out of index exposures in the aged care sector which roared back to life following a recovery in the housing market and takeover speculation.  In addition to our exposures to Arvida Group and Ryman Healthcare we added to our exposure to Metlifecare at the start of October at NZ$4.44 however with a NZ$7 takeover offer received in the last few days of 2019 we are likely to exit this name in the near term. Kiwi Property Group and Investore followed hot on the heels of the Goodman Property capital raise of late September raising their own chunks of capital during the quarter and we suspect there is more of this activity to come. We added one name to the portfolio with the addition of Goodman Group (Australia) in the last few days of 2019. GMG continues to benefit from its differentiated approach focussing on supply constrained markets, growing assets under management, and benefiting from a healthy development pipeline. Management also recently noted more leasing deals are now extending out to 15 years and the portfolio is under rented across all geographies offering further upside in the medium term.


The NZ listed property sector remains fully valued in our view, trading at a 27% premium to adjusted net tangible asset value (NTA) and a 3.70% cash yield.  As a comparison, the Australian sector is trading at a 1.6% premium to adjusted NTA (excluding GMG/CHC) and a 4.7% cash yield. In our view, further capital raises are highly likely in New Zealand as companies take advantage of inflated share prices. We continue to look for opportunities outside the NZ listed property index.

We actively manage the fund’s foreign currency exposures. As at 31 December 2019, these exposures represented 1.26% of the value of the fund and were unhedged.
