GPT Group (ASX: GPT)’s listing in 1971 paved the way for other property trusts and an A-REIT sector now worth $146 billion. GPT’s listing anniversary is, in effect, the 50th anniversary of the A-REIT market on ASX.
Together, the 49 A-REITs currently listed on ASX have made Australia one of the world’s top REIT markets. They’ve enabled investors to own part of office towers, shopping centres and industrial warehouses. A-REITs have also been a source of yield for income investors over decades.
GPT Group’s 50th listing anniversary on ASX inspires this special edition of ASX Investor Update. We hope you find this issue informative.
