Fund OverviewQuay is a boutique investment management business established in 2013 with a focus on preserving and creating wealth for investors through investments in real estate securities. Quay uses a dual manager approach to the investment and portfolio management decision making process. This involves both Principals collaborating to determine significant portfolio investments and positions.

The Fund will invest in a number of global listed real estate companies, groups or funds. The investment strategy is to make investments in real estate securities at a price that will deliver a real, after inflation, total return of 5% per annum (before costs and fees), inclusive of distributions over a longer-term period.

The Investment Strategy is indifferent to the constraints of any index benchmarks and is relatively concentrated in its number of investments. The Fund is expected to own between 20 and 40 securities, and from time to time up to 20% of the portfolio maybe invested in cash. The Fund is $A un-hedged.
