Qualitas is a real estate investment management firm focused on investing across the capital structure and risk spectrum. We are active in the major capital cities of Australia, deploying institutional and private investor capital to fund high-quality, commercial real estate partners. Established in 2008, we manage circa AU $3 billion of committed capital.
Our investment philosophy is to seek deep value-based opportunities, with a focus on risk mitigation through institutional-grade risk assessment and management, governance and operational platforms. We co-invest from our own balance sheet to ensure alignment with our investors.
A HERITAGE OF OUTPERFORMANCE
Since 2008, Qualitas has built a consistent track record of strong returns, with no losses since inception.
Qualitas’ investment strategies include senior and stretch senior debt, mezzanine debt, preferred equity and ordinary equity investments in real estate development, value-add, repositioning, special situations and other opportunistic transactions.
With offices in Melbourne and Sydney, we capitalise on strong local market knowledge, deep industry contacts and on-the-ground capability in origination, execution, and asset and loan management to deliver results.

AN ONGOING INVESTMENT IN SUSTAINABILITY
At Qualitas, our commitment to sustainability means making environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors a priority across the business – from our leadership and workplace to our investments.
This commitment reflects the real estate sector’s growing focus on addressing the industry’s significant carbon footprint, as well as ways to improve energy use, waste and water management, labour management, and community relations.
We believe that integrating ESG considerations will lead to better performance, sustainable growth and success for our business, partners and investors.
Our sustainability framework is based on the following beliefs:
- Sustainability creates value – Sustainability supports better investment decisions and plays an important role in our ongoing growth and success.
- Our approach will evolve – We will continue to strengthen what we do with a mindset to innovate, test and integrate.
- We are part of a real property ecosystem – We will learn and collaborate alongside others to drive change.
Our three key priorities are:
- Climate change: To enable real property climate change action.
- Diversity and inclusion: To support a culture of diversity and inclusion for our business and communities.
- Integrity: To continue to have integrity and strong governance at the core of our business.
Our commitment to ESG considerations is highlighted by Qualitas being a signatory to the Principles for Responsible Investment (the world’s leading proponent for responsible investment supported by the UN).
