Investec Australia Property Fund experiences a rocky time while offshore-invested property funds such as Rockcastle Global Real Estate and New Europe Property Investments perform well over the past year.

Fortress is expected this week to make a firm offer to Capital Property Fund’s shareholders to take over the fund after expressing an interest in a takeover since May.

More investors are likely to place Accelerate Property Fund on their buying lists after the company finally acquired the rights to add another 90000m² to Fourways Mall.

IndluPlace Properties is likely to pave the way for more specialist property listings. Redefine International’s hotel exposure is already at 20% of total assets so a separate hotel listing is the logical route.

Property funds struggle to fill office vacancies this year with few companies seeking new office space.

South African listed property delivered returns of 26.6% for 2014, outperforming all other asset classes for the year. 

Listed property sector should continue to offer better returns than other income-generating investments such as bonds and cash.

Speculation about further consolidation in 2014 for the most active sector on the JSE for corporate action, the SA REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust) sector, is rife yet again.

Collapse of yet another proposed multibillion rand merger in the R300bn listed property sector raises renewed questions on whether consolidation is necessarily in shareholders' best interests.

Well-established property counters have posted strong annual results over the past few weeks.
