Downgrading to junk status and ongoing political tomfoolery might make South African investors a little anxious about protecting their investment portfolios against the market volatility resulting from the uncertainty created by the current environment.

There are opportunities for listed property companies in the industrial sector, especially in developing specialised warehousing and distribution centres, say experts.

The development of distribution centres in SA has gained momentum in the past two years, but demand is yet to match the growing supply.

The SA REIT Conference is again proving to be the gathering place for the sharpest minds in property, finance and investment, and an exciting platform for debate and interaction.

Dr Reuel Khoza will join the powerhouse of business leaders from across the globe, all recognised as change agents in their fields, as a keynote speaker at the upcoming SA REIT Conference in Sandton, next month.

Fortress Income Fund's development plans are given a boost as it raises R1.3bn in an oversubscribed accelerated bookbuild.

Fortress Income Fund more than doubles its B-share dividend to shareholders in the six months to December.

Listed property returned 7.99% to its investors, outstripping cash’s 6.46%, equities 5.13% and bonds’ -3.93%, according to figures from Catalyst Fund Managers.

The biggest merger in the history of the South African listed property sector is going ahead, with Fortress Income Fund finalising the acquisition of Capital Property Fund.

South African listed property holds its own compared with other global regions so far this year but economic pressures are set to bring volatility to bear on property markets worldwide.
