Centuria NZ Industrial Fund

Centuria NZ Industrial is a limited liability company that was established in April 2018 as an open-ended, unlisted property fund. Its purpose is to provide investors with the opportunity to invest in a portfolio of strategically selected industrial real estate assets that provide both tenant and location diversification within this strongly performing sector of the New Zealand property market. The industrial sector continues to outperform the commercial office and retail sectors, a continuation of the long-term trend we have seen over the past 15 years.

How has the Fund performed?

Centuria NZ Industrial has performed well with an annualised pre-tax total return (cashflow and capital growth) of 15%1 per annum since establishment in 2018. A key long term strategic investment objective for Centuria NZ Industrial is to deliver sustainable and stable income ­­distributions paid to investors monthly, along with the potential for long-term capital growth.

The acquisition of Tidal Road, Columbia Ave and Strong Parts Portfolio will bring the total portfolio to 21 assets (18 located in Auckland, two in Christchurch and one in Wellington) with 52 tenants and an independent valuation of $547.31 million2.

These stats are post settlement of Tidal Road, assumed to be 30 September 2021.
