Zurich Financial Services Australia (Zurich) is proud to announce the Zurich Investments Australian Property Securities Fund (“The Fund”) was awarded ‘Winner’ in the ‘AREIT’ category for 2017 at the Professional Planner Zenith Fund Awards on Friday.

Managed by Zurich’s strategic investment partner, Renaissance Property Securities Pty Ltd (Renaissance), the award was in recognition of its highly experienced team, and time-tested value approach to investing in Australian listed property stocks.

Zurich Investments National Sales Manager, Linda Stangherlin, said the fund offers investors access to some of the best value listed property trusts in Australia and is actively managed by one of the most experienced investment teams in the industry.

“The success of the fund is in large part due to the collective experience and deep, specialist knowledge that the Renaissance team apply in actively investing in the asset class.

“Their track record is easy to quantify – aside from the returns the fund delivers, this is the third time the Fund has been recognised by the research houses this year.

“We’re proud to have worked with such a great partner for more than 11 years and absolutely delighted with the win,” she said.

“The Fund won the Morningstar Fund Manager of the Year in the Property & Infrastructure category for 2017, and was also recently added to the Lonsec model.”

The Fund suits investors seeking exposure to Australia’s diverse property market, through investing in property trusts listed on the ASX. It aims to provide capital growth and regular income over the medium-to-long term, and when added to an existing portfolio, contributes to a growth allocation.
