Fund Overview

CBRE Global Real Assets Fund

The CBRE Global Real Assets Fund (‘the Fund’) is an actively managed ‘Fund of Funds’ strategy that holds investments in a strategic mix of globally diversified real estate and infrastructure assets, providing exposure to both listed securities and direct assets. It offers Australian wholesale investors access to a globally diversified, institutional quality portfolio of real assets with monthly liquidity.


Investment Strategy

The Fund has exposure to four underlying funds actively managed by CBRE Investment Management’s specialist investors from the Private Real Estate, Private Infrastructure and Listed Real Asset teams. The target asset allocation for the Fund is 70% listed securities and 30% unlisted securities.

Fund Highlights

  • Potential for income generation: Infrastructure and real estate investments often provide stable and predictable income streams, making them attractive for investors seeking reliable returns.
  • Inflation hedge: Real assets tend to perform well in inflationary environments, preserving wealth by keeping pace with, or outpacing, inflation.
  • Long-term growth potential: Infrastructure and real estate developments drive economic growth, offering opportunities to participate in long-term asset appreciation.
  • Liquidity: The Fund blends a unique combination of both listed and unlisted assets in a structure which provides monthly liquidity.
  • Established track record: CBRE Investment Management and its affiliates have an extensive global platform that affords substantial resources and scale, and which has resulted in a track record that has exceeded relevant benchmarks over the long-term.

* CBRE Investment Management Listed Real Assets LLC is the Investment Manager for the CBRE Global Real Asset Fund.

** Each Listed Asset Fund hedges foreign currency exposure to AUD. To maintain an unhedged exposure to AUD exchange rate fluctuations, the Fund uses derivatives to reverse the effect of currency hedging contracts at the Listed Asset Fund level. This process of multiple currency hedges nets off, leaving the Fund unhedged.

# CIML processes redemption requests on a best endeavours basis, subject to factors like available cash and the Fund's ability to redeem from the Underlying Funds. CIML has discretion to accept, partially accept, or reject redemption requests. Requests received and accepted by 2pm (Sydney time) on the last Business Day of the month are processed using the Redemption Date as the last Calendar Day of the month. Due to illiquid assets, CIML implements measures including monthly and annual caps on redemptions, and pro rata processing for requests exceeding these caps.
