Monthly Newsletter September Wrap 2009

The AREIT sector experiences another strong month
The AREIT market delivered another positive run during September, delivering a total return of 9.8%, outperforming the broader equities market by 3.6%. This performance sees the AREIT sector continue its rally for the sixth consecutive month. From the March record low to 30 September, the AREIT market has rebounded an impressive 50%. Whilst the sector has delivered outstanding returns over this period, we are very mindful that the Index still remains a long way from the highs of 2007. However, the gradual return of investor’s risk appetite, rebuilding of the sector and positive economic outlook provide the foundation for a sustained recovery.
