Charter Hall

Charter Hall is listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX:CHC). With over 29 years’ experience in property investment and funds management, we’re one of Australia’s leading fully integrated property groups. We use our property expertise to access, deploy, manage and invest equity across our core sectors – office, retail, industrial and social infrastructure.

Operating with prudence, we’ve carefully curated a $39.2 billion diverse portfolio of over 1,100 high quality, long leased properties. Partnership and financial discipline are at the heart of our approach. Acting in the best interest of customers and communities, we combine insight and inventiveness to unlock hidden value. Taking a long term view, our $7.3 billion development pipeline delivers sustainable, technologically enabled projects for our customers.

The impacts of what we do are far-reaching. From helping businesses succeed by supporting their evolving workplace needs, to providing investors with superior returns for a better retirement, we’re powered by the drive to go further.

Invest with us on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX)

Listed Property Funds, also known as Australian real estate investment trusts (A-REITs), provide investors with exposure to commercial property. A-REITs are traded on the ASX, which provides the benefit of daily liquidity. You can invest in Charter Hall Group itself, or in one of the three funds we manage – Charter Hall Retail REIT (ASX:CQR), Charter Hall Long WALE REIT (ASX:CLW) and Charter Hall Social Infrastructure REIT (ASX:CQE) -  and gain exposure to the properties they hold.

Invest with us via A-REIT Securities

You can also invest in the Charter Hall Maxim Property Securities Fund (formerly Folkestone Maxim A-REIT Securities Fund), a high conviction, actively managed unlisted fund that gives investors exposure to a mix of quality listed A-REITs that own assets across the retail, residential, commercial, industrial and real estate related social infrastructure sectors.

Invest with us via Unlisted Direct Property Funds

We provide opportunities for retail investors to access institutional grade property - office, industrial, retail or social infrastructure - via investment in our unlisted direct property funds. We manage more than $5.6 billion in unlisted property funds on behalf of retail investors, SMSF’s and family offices.

We also manage more than $25 billion in unlisted wholesale property funds and partnerships on behalf of pension funds and large superannuation providers.

Charter Hall acquired Folkestone in November 2018.
