Global Real Estate Property

The Fairtree Global Real Estate Prescient Fund was launched in March 2017

The Fairtree Global Real Estate Prescient Fund is an actively managed equity fund, investing in listed real estate securities in developed markets across the globe. The fund’s objective is to provide our clients access to high quality, international real estate assets that should benefit from capital appreciation while also delivering solid dividends in USD. We aim to outperform the FTSE EPRA/NAREIT Developed Index Net TRI USD by analyzing the central economic and political drivers in the various geographies, identifying global property sector trends and studying the specific physical property market and equity fundamentals.

We overlay this with rigorous statistical valuation analysis using our proprietary models. The portfolio has a long term focus, and is well diversified across geographic regions, currencies, real estate sectors and stocks. We aim to lower portfolio volatility by actively adjusting the stocks and cash levels, while still outperforming our benchmark. The fund will invest primarily in real estate equities in the United States, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, Europe and the UK.

Andrew Carnegie


Investors should take cognisance of the fact that there are risks involved in buying or selling any financial product and that past performance of a financial product is not necessarily indicative of its future performance. The value of financial products can increase as well as decrease over time, depending on the value of the underlying securities and market conditions. 

Hedge funds are portfolios of collective investment schemes and are regulated under the Collective Investment Schemes Control Act, 45 of 2002. Investments in portfolios of collective investment schemes are generally medium to long term investments. Collective investments are traded at ruling prices and may engage in scrip lending and borrowing. The manager of a collective investment scheme may close a portfolio to new investors in order to manage the portfolio more efficiently in terms of its mandate.
