Abacus Property Group is a leading diversified property group that invests in real estate opportunities to deliver enhanced returns. Abacus was established in 1996 and listed on the ASX in 2002. It is included in the S&P/ASX 200 index and has a market capitalisation of $2.2 billion.
Abacus has established a successful track record of acquiring real estate assets across a range of sectors, and through active management, delivered strong income and capital growth. An enhancement to this strategy will focus the Group's investment, asset and development management capabilities on opportunities in the commercial office and self storage sectors which have delivered the Group's best total returns. Abacus will continue to expand partnership collaborations with like-minded and complimentary skilled groups.
Abacus is a stapled entity that combines the securities in three companies, Abacus Group Holdings Limited, Abacus Group Projects Limited and Abacus Storage Operations Limited, and three trusts, Abacus Trust, Abacus Income Trust and Abacus Storage Property Trust. Investors acquire stapled securities comprising the securities of all six listed entities.
Abacus’s overarching strategy is to invest our capital in core plus properties. We take advantage of value adding opportunities to drive long term total returns and maximise securityholder value.
Our investment objective is to provide our investors with reliable and increasing returns. We look for property assets that are capable of providing growth in both rental income and asset value as a result of our diligent active management.
Abacus Property Group owns a diversified investment portfolio of office, self storage, retail and industrial properties. Rental income from these properties is the largest contributor to the earnings of the Group. Abacus’ disciplined property selection process maintains a firm focus on fundamental real estate value. Abacus seeks mispriced assets with short term imperfections in fundamentals, such as temporary flaws in leasing, management or capital structures. Abacus pursues transformational events that will drive asset value.
