Alpha Fund Managers


Investment objective

The Alpha Property Securities Fund is designed for investors seeking both high-income and capital growth opportunities, combined with moderate tax benefits, by investing in a globally-diversified portfolio of listed property securities. It aims to outperform (after fund fees and expenses, and before taxes) a combination of the UBS Global Investors Index (Local Currencies) and the S&P/ASX 200 Property Trust Accumulation Index on a rolling 3 to 5 year basis. The Fund invests in global listed property securities that derive the bulk of their income from property rental - providing greater diversification and liquidity than direct property, and access to a wider universe of investment opportunities than the Australian market.

Investments held

The Alpha Property Securities Fund gains exposure to listed property securities traded on global markets by investing into property securities managed funds.
