Investment principles & strategy 

At Qualitas we have a team of experienced investment professionals with the ability to analyse real estate opportunities from both a debt and equity perspective. This gives us a strong competitive advantage and enables us to deliver an enviable track record of returns for our fund investors. 

Overall, there are times in the various cycles, which can be at different points depending on sector and geography, where we prefer downside protection (credit investing) and other times where we prefer the ability to earn upside and outsized returns (equity investing). This is a dynamic process. Qualitas’ agility, experience and ability to pivot as needed is what gives investors’ confidence and contributes to the company’s successful performance. 

We are committed to integrating and managing appropriate ESG measures throughout the organisation, and in our funds and investment processes. We aim to leverage our platform and position as a leading alternative commercial real estate financier to play a role in assisting Australia to transition to a more sustainable built environment, with a focus on residential property. 

Risk is always important in our investment decisions. We have a three lines of defence framework – our investment team, risk team and investment committee – that ensures effective and efficient risk governance, and it is incumbent on all our team to ensure risk is central in our thinking. We know that our investment due diligence process underpinned by risk assessment has helped build Qualitas’ industry leading investing reputation. 

Strategic corporate development 

Experience tells us that the best investment results are delivered by following a consistent approach when identifying real estate investment opportunities. 

We have a client-led investment model, leveraging our strong sector experience across private credit and equity to increase our exposure to scalable and attractive industry megatrends and investment opportunities. These include: 


Australian residential sector, including both build-to-rent and build-to-sell, offers opportunities due to the significant disconnect between limited supply and constraints on future supply, compared to the core underlying demand 

Borrowers are seeking speed and certainty of capital and decision making; flexibility; specialist financing and industry experience 


Investors are seeking appropriate risk-adjusted returns and regular income with access to private credit, especially in CRE 

Investor returns are expected to increase with rising interest rates 


A fast-growing sector in Australia, addressing affordability and providing lifestyle benefits. The sector is well established in offshore markets, yet only in its infancy in Australia 

Increasing interest from investors in BTR equity and debt opportunities as the asset class becomes better understood
