Our strategy

Delivering superior risk-adjusted returns for investors


Dexus's strategy is to deliver superior risk adjusted returns for investors from high-quality real estate in Australia's major cities.


Delivering superior risk-adjusted returns means outperforming the relevant three and five-year benchmarks in each market in which Dexus owns or manages properties while providing Dexus Security holders with sustainable and growing distributions.

We have two strategic objectives that underpin this strategy:

  • Generating sustainable income streams: Investing in income streams that provide resilience through the cycle
  • Being identified as the real estate investment partner of choice: Expanding and diversifying the funds management business

Our strategic approach

 

Generating sustainable income streams

Real estate investment partner of choice

We have invested in having a superior operating platform and will continue this focus to build a world-class business. The size of Dexus’s balance sheet, deep access to pools of capital and an agile, solution-based culture are key enablers of our strategy, supported by our prudent approach to capital management and an embedded commitment to sustainability.

Our scale supports the generation of investment outperformance for both Dexus investors and our third party capital partners through providing valuable customer insights and the opportunity to invest in people, systems and technologies that enhance our customers’ experiences. It also enhances our ability to find the ideal workspace solution for customers and generates cost efficiencies.

Our objectives of generating sustainable income streams and being identified as the real estate investment partner of choice are complementary. Our success in the office sector has enabled Dexus to attract investment partners not just in office but also in the industrial, retail and healthcare sectors, in turn providing the opportunity to drive investment performance whilst obtaining scale in our core markets.

Our key business activities

 

Our strategy is underpinned by our business activities of investing,  developing, managing, and transacting and trading properties.

To generate superior risk-adjusted returns for investors, it is necessary that for each asset we own or manage, we maximise cash flow and unlock value over the investment lifecycle.

We do this through applying our transactional, asset and property management expertise to drive earnings and create value across three areas of focus: property portfolio, funds management and trading.

Earnings drivers

Property portfolio
