Invest With Us

Real estate is an asset class subject to cycles depending on underlying supply and demand fundamentals in the financial, property and occupier markets.


Barings Real Estate Australia applies a disciplined approach focusing on real estate fundamentals, skilled asset management with a strong emphasis on understanding and mitigating risk to maximise the opportunity for outstanding returns for our clients.


We seek to be a landlord of choice for occupiers. To achieve this, we first seek to listen and to understand the occupiers needs. We recognise that the quality of our customer relationships is an integral part of the value we create and the expansion of our portfolio.

Investment Philosophy

Barings Real Estate Australia is a thematic investor dedicated to a partnership approach with our clients. The key elements of our approach include strong alignment, transparent communication and co-investment with our Investor Partners.

Investment Strategies

Our investment strategy is dynamic and seeks to take advantage of market inefficiencies to deliver outstanding risk adjusted returns. We adopt an analytical approach that combines macro level research and bottom-up assessment from the asset level. This approach, combined with deep industry networks and contacts, provides Barings Real Estate Australia Investor Partners unique access to high quality investment opportunities.


The strategies adopted include asset class selection, value creation and targeted development with the main objective to improve the asset’s cash-flow or manufacture investment grade assets.
