Transcend will focus its strategy on the acquisition of stabilised rental portfolios in South Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa.
Consistent growth in dividends achieved through improving performance on the portfolio with rental escalations and hands-on asset management.
LEVERAGING RESIDENTIAL FUND EXPERTISE
As one of the few specialists REITs with a residential-only property portfolio, Transcend has been a driver of the institutional residential rental market in South Africa. Transcend has focused on medium density, secure estates, with lifestyle amenities.
HARNESSING A DEFENSIVE MARKET SEGMENT
Globally, residential REITs have a track record of being defensive, protecting against inflation over the long term and experiencing less volatility than other real estate sectors. With an ongoing trend toward urbanisation in South Africa, the demand for quality, affordable rental properties will continue to exceed supply. This will ensure the sustainablity of Transcend’s income-generating ability in the future.
