A new strategy to align the real benefits of property with the needs of long-term savers. It aims to deliver better risk adjusted liability focused returns, with inflation-linked cashflow and income growth central to strategy.

The Fund aims to redefine property as a real asset, by providing longer term inflation protection and capital preservation to better match the liabilities of investors.

The Fund has a total real return performance target; this aligns the objectives of the fund management team with the liabilities of pensions savers, far better than traditional core funds that simply adopt a relative return MSCIbenchmark. It will also access a wider UK investible universe of traditional and alternative sectors such as healthcare, leisure, car parks, social infrastructure and student housing, aiming to generate greater diversification and lower volatility.

In addition, constraints have been adopted to control risks beyond relative weightings to shops, offices and industrial. By seeking to optimise the benefits of property as a real asset the portfolio should provide better longer term inflation protection and capital preservation.

How will the AEW UK Real Return Fund be different?

The Fund will not chase the Peer Group (MSCI) benchmark relative returns, like many core funds.

The Fund will embrace all real estate sectors that reflect economic themes and offer inflation-like attributes.

The Fund is prohibited from taking traditional risks such as speculative development and leverage.

The Fund is not a long-lease or annuity-style fund

we know from experience that property is not a fixed income asset

strategy and property skills create sustainable income streams and preserve capital, not long leases

An FCA authorised, open ended, core-style property fund. PAIF QIS. Eligible investors: UK and Overseas Corporate Pension Funds, Local Authorities, Charities, SIPPS, UK and Overseas Corporates and Wealth Managers.
