What Are Development Opportunities?

Be early. Be insightful. Drive to consensus.

Aurient Investment Partners offer  private property developers in Australia consultancy and advisory services,  which previously have been out of the reach of smaller players.

The companies focus in 2021-2023 is the burgeoning Build to Rent sector of the Australian residential property market.

Build-to-Rent, as an asset class, has proven the concept and the the potential for desirable renter segments–dual-income rental households and other high-wage earning households–to embrace this asset class is there, thanks in large part to the BTR amenities designed to cater to this demographic.

Overall, the timing, proof of concept, and market tailwinds make the Build-to-Rent asset class a very interesting opportunity for investors to review and consider.


Investors flock to Build to Rent projects

With interest rates at record lows, and commercial and retail assets suffering through Covid-19 and unlikely to improve anytime soon, yield hungry investors are finding safety in the growing global real estate phenomenon of Build To Rent.

Real estate is in a period of substantial disruption and growth that has already created big winners and stands to create more.

To break out from the pack, investors should be embracing new asset types, food groups, vehicles, and partners.

Political and economic uncertainty clouds the outlook in 2021, and yet investors remain drawn to the income-generating attributes of real estate.

At $3.1 trillion in assets under management (AUM), real estate is one of the largest asset classes.

And thanks to income supplement schemes and social welfare, the rental income from multifamily/build-to-rent assets has been more stable than rental income from commercial or industrial assets.

Investors have started to flock to the asset class because of the perception of equity-like returns, relatively high cash yields, and lower correlation with broader capital markets.

Central banks have responded by reversing the rising interest rate policy of a year ago. This lower-for-even-longer monetary phase has been a shot in the arm for real estate capital markets, with the notable exception of retail.

The Build to Rent asset class could recover quicker than any other property type, while offering a safe haven for investors.
