JSE property funds adding to portfolios

Listed Property funds grow property portfolios in highly competitive market.

While an analyst believes this may not necessarily be the result of recent listed property price declines‚ general price weakness in the sector has made many potential property deals less attractive than before.
 

Private placement 'fatigue' has been partly blamed for the sharp sell-off in property stocks over the past two weeks.

The volatility of the listed property sector over the past two weeks can be largely explained by movements in bond yields and the rand, and given the market’s close correlation to bonds, analysts say it may remain volatile in the short term.

South Africa’s listed property sector continued its slide during the week ending 31 May 2013, as the Rand breached R10/US$ and bond yields moved sharply higher. 

South Africa’s listed property sector advanced 0.5% during the week ending 10 May 2013, as bond yields drifted higher and the Rand weakened against the US dollar. 

The listed property sector has returned 18.8% for the year-to-date, significantly outperforming both the bond and equity markets (week ended 3 May 2013).
