  • BDO A-REIT Survey 2017

Overview

Australian Real Estate Investment Trusts (A-REITs) performed poorly for investors over the 2017 financial year, contributing to a 6.3% negative total return - down significantly from 24.6% on the previous year.

It has been a tough year especially for the retail sector with the uncertainty around what impact the impending arrival of Amazon will have on the real estate sector, and the failure of some global brands in the Australian market – such as Top Shop and Gap. These factors have influenced market sentiment for the retail REITs, which has played out in the performance of their stock even while underlying assets have performed strongly.

These findings were revealed as part of the 23rd annual BDO A-REIT survey. Click below to download the report.
