    Hi all – can someone give me an indication of the rough number of commercial property investors in Australia? I’m just trying to get an understanding of the market and learn more about it.

    Many thanks,

    Traditionally the majority of investors in this area were the unlisted property trusts (insurance companies, investment houses, Banks etc) who had a grade CBD assets.

    Nowadays, superfunds have a large stake and anyone with money in a fund probably has some exposure.

    Lower value assets (sub-$10m) are owned either directly or indirectly biz mum and dad investors or their SMSF.

    Australia is a diverse land that is home to a wide range of fascinating natural landmarks and iconic destinations. It is a multicultural nation that is warm and accepting of people from all over the world.

    Boasting some of the world’s most beautiful natural wonders like the Great Barrier Reef (the world’s largest coral ecosystem), Australian Alps and home to special faunas such as the kangaroos and koala.

    As the world’s 12th largest economy, Australia is one of the most well-developed countries in the world. Property is one of Australia’s largest assets and a strong contributing factor that influences its economic wealth.

    On a global ranking, Australia has had the 6th highest rise in annual property prices over the last five decades, with house prices surging at an average increase of 8.1% per year.

    Research by BIS and UBS shows 9 out of 10 properties made a profit in spite of the slowdown in the housing market. However, the market saw a moderation in 2018 with Sydney being the hardest hit, it affected investor’s appetite due to the stricter regulatory and lending measures.

    A prominent factor that underpins the Australian economy is its population growth. Australia’s population grew by another 1.6% to 24.7 million in the 12 months to the end of September 2017.
