Perennial Real Estate offers investment portfolios in the following capabilities:
Investors Interests First: Key investment and business professionals in Perennial have the opportunity, over the longer term, to earn equity in their respective businesses. The ability to earn equity is subject to the delivery of investment outcomes which meet or exceed investor expectations. We believe that this environment creates a strong alignment of interest between the goals of investors and our investment professionals.
Active Investment Management: Perennial believes that investment markets are not fully efficient, causing asset prices to deviate from "fair value". Through careful research of investment fundamentals and the application of a disciplined investment process, market inefficiencies can be identified and exploited by experienced investment professionals applying an active investment approach.
Independent Research: The cornerstone of the investment process of each of Perennial's boutiques is proprietary in-house research. Perennial conducts independent first-hand research on all securities before any can be included in our investment portfolios. A sharing of knowledge within Perennial's suite of boutiques ensures that all of our teams are up to date with domestic and global issues.
Long-term investing: Perennial's investment professionals often identify investment opportunities that have good prospects over the medium to long term. It can often take months, and sometimes years, for the investment opportunities to deliver the desired results. All of the Perennial portfolios are positioned for long-term investment performance outcomes. Our objective is to add value over the medium to long term, relative to a recognised market benchmark, in a risk efficient manner. Many of Perennial's capabilities have a proven and consistent long-term track record with good results relative to our peers.
