How to invest in industrial real estate

If you want to ride the wave of industrial property investing, there are several of different options available to you as an investor, being:

industrial buildingsPurchase a direct whole industrial property. This can be cost prohibitive to individual investors given the relatively high value of assets.
Property fund managers or syndicators offer the ability to buy a “share” in an asset in the form of an industrial property fund – this usually has a minimum investment amount.
Listed entities where you buy and sell securities/shares in a trust on the NZX.

Buying a direct property as a sole investor obviously would carry more risk due to the high cost of exposure to the individual property.

By investing via an unlisted property fund or in a listed REIT, you are placing your trust in the property fund manager and responsible entity. Property fund managers are regulated by The Financial Markets Authority (FMA) and you should always make sure they have longevity and a strong track record.
