THE local listed-property sector has delivered returns above expectations so far this year, thanks to a strong bond market, solid company results and increased demand for listed property stocks, according to Keillen Ndlovu, the head of listed-property funds at Stanlib.

Liberty seeks to launch an African Direct Property Development Fund offering investors commercial retail property opportunities in countries such as Nigeria and Kenya.

South African-listed property sector is set for a radical overhaul that is likely to woo a far greater number of foreign investors.

STANLIB intends to launch its Stanlib Africa Direct Property Development Fund in May or June, as it seeks to capitalise on Africa’s growing retail sector.

After several years of strong price growth in the listed property sector, most property pundits believe we can expect slower — albeit solid — growth this year from listed property stocks. Nevertheless there are still major opportunities for investors who want an investment that offers a steady income stream.
