Commercial property is a growing asset class

November 04, 2011

As an asset class, Australian commercial property could yield similar returns to equities when adjusted for risk over the next decade, according to new research from ANZ.

New forecasts have been published by the bank in its report Asset returns: Past, Present and Future, which indicate that equities are likely to overtake residential property as the nation's highest-returning asset class.


"Commercial property also shows strong returns, sitting between equities and owner-occupied housing," the report claimed.

And when risk is factored in, commercial property could generate similar returns to equities and also outpace residential property in the long-term.

In the third quarter of 2011, NSW dominated the nation's commercial property transactions - with the value of sales in Australia's most populous state exceeding all the other states combined.

DTZ's recently-published Australian Investment Market update indicated that the total value of commercial property transactions in Australia for the year so far stands at $11.2 billion.

In the period between July 1 and September 30, private investors were responsible for more than $500 million in property purchases, the report showed - which is a significant increase compared with the first six months of 2011.
