Corporate overview

Dexus (ASX:DXS) is a leading Australasian fully integrated real asset group, managing a high-quality Australasian real estate and infrastructure portfolio valued at A$57.1bn.

We directly and indirectly own A$15.8bn of office, industrial, healthcare, retail and infrastructure assets and investments. We manage a further A$41.3bn of investments in our funds management business which provides third-party capital with exposure to quality sector specific and diversified real asset products. The funds within this business have a strong track record of delivering performance and benefit from Dexus’s capabilities.

The group’s A$16.9bn[1] development pipeline provides the opportunity to grow both portfolios and enhance future returns. Our sustainability aspiration is to unlock the potential of real assets to create lasting positive impact and a more sustainable tomorrow, and is focused on the priorities of customer prosperity, climate action and enhancing communities.

[1] Excludes infrastructure where there are select development opportunities across the portfolio.

Vision: To be globally recognised as Australasia’s leading real asset investment manager. 

Strategy: To deliver superior risk-adjusted returns for investors from high-quality real estate and infrastructure assets. 

Our strategy will be delivered by pursuing two key strategic objectives: 

  • Generating resilient income streams by investing in assets that provide resilience through-the-cycle
  • Being identified as investment manager of choice by expanding and diversifying the funds management business.

Investment principles & strategy

Dexus’s strategic objectives of generating resilient income streams and being identified as investment manager of choice are supported by a concentrated focus on factors that will position Dexus well through economic cycles. These factors include: investing and managing high-quality assets, access to a broad range of capital sources, maintaining a balance sheet of scale and strength, commitment to ESG outcomes, and an agile, solution-based culture. 

We view scale as a key differentiator. Operational scale supports asset-level performance by broadening customer insights, enhancing our ability to attract high-quality team members and providing capacity to invest in leading systems and technology. We invest alongside our third capital partners to access real asset investments with the objectives of improving portfolio quality and performance and achieving scale in our core markets.

In real estate, our scale and capability across healthcare (circa A$2bn of funds under management), industrial (circa A$11bn), office (circa A$22bn) and retail (circa A$10bn) provides Dexus and its partners with exposure to a range of large, growing markets from which to secure attractive investments. This sets the basis for delivery of the Dexus strategy via the creation of a ‘virtuous cycle’ of capital raising, deployment of proceeds and delivery of returns for investors.
