Let’s be friends
We like to get to know our clients individually… now you can get
to know us on a personal level too.
We are a specialist investment manager that aims to achieve superior returns for both retail and wholesale investors through the identification, aquisition, management and development of residential property.
Due to the shortage of good assets and the relatively low yield environment, appropriately structured managed funds have increased in popularity in the last few years. By identifying unique opportunities in the Australian property market, Equiti targets value-added aquisitions where development and management experience combine to produce competitive advantages.
An opportunity to access residential real estate assets located within well-established high-demand Sydney suburbs.

Equiti has a focus on selective, value-based investing and employs a top down macroeconomic approach and a bottom up microeconomic approach to the identification and acquisition of property assets.
Macroeconomic Approach – The top down macroeconomic approach helps us to identify and select specific property markets and sectors that are likely to offer the best economic performance. This approach includes monitoring population growth, economic development, unemployment, government policies in relation to housing approvals, rezoning, infrastructure development and land releases. The aim is to identify areas which exhibit favourable trends in supply and demand characteristics.
Microeconomic Process – The bottom up microeconomic process focuses on specific property development analysis and helps us to identify those individual property development assets that will best enable each fund to achieve its investment objectives within the geographical areas identified in the macroeconomic top down approach.
Due Diligence Process – A rigorous due diligence process is employed by Equiti Capital Limited and, combined with the support of the Investment Review Committee, ensures a strategic and quantitative approach to the selection of suitable property and that each asset selected fits within the risk profile and investment objectives of the fund.

Our property development funds bring together the combined resources and disciplines from both the Equiti Group of Companies and the Hudson Group of Companies. This unique collaboration offers an integrated dual perspective towards property asset management. As investors, we understand the importance of performance and return on investment. As developers, we recognise the value and financial rewards that developing can bring to real property assets.
