Investing in Commercial Property – an overview

You can invest in commercial property a number of ways – the two most common being indirectly via entities listed on the NZX or through a centuria model where you share in the direct ownership of the asset alongside like-minded investors, also known as syndication.

The commercial property market has historically been a proven option to diversify your investment portfolio and you can invest in a range of commercial property assets.

Property ownership commonly referred to as ‘syndication’ is a relatively easy and straightforward way for investors to share in the ownership of commercial properties. Both investments in single assets structures (one property) and fund structures (comprising of more than one property) can be accessed through Centuria.

Investors’ funds are pooled, and they become investment partners in the building(s). The property is fully managed on behalf of the investors with cash returns distributed into the investors’ bank account.

Many investors choose to benefit from diversification through investing in properties in various locations (throughout New Zealand and Australia) and differing property types i.e., retail, commercial & industrial, along with different tenant profiles.
