Acucap was listed in March 2002 with the purpose of bringing to the market a good quality listing with solid growth prospects. The purpose was underpinned by the core values of ‘quality’ and ‘growth’ :
• Quality - in the property portfolio, in the people (both executive and non-executive), in the structure of the company, in disclosure and communication, and in the professional advisory teams and service providers; and
• Growth - consistent real growth in unitholders’ income.

To achieve its purpose, Acucap’s strategy has been to construct a quality portfolio consisting of a smaller number of individually large assets, all situated in the major metropoles, sectorally diversified, but with a bias towards retail property.
