ASX ANNOUNCEMENT: A$550m credit mandate from a new global institutional investor based in North America

26 June 2024

Qualitas Limited (ASX: QAL) (Qualitas, or Company), a leading Australian alternative real estate investment manager, is pleased to announce that it has secured its first commitment from a North American-based global institutional investor, with A$550 million to be invested in commercial real estate (CRE) private credit across construction loans, predevelopment land loans and investment loans.

The new mandate brings Qualitas’ total funds under management (FUM)1 to A$8.6 billion representing c.42% FUM growth from 30 June 2023. A significant proportion of Qualitas’ FUM c.81% is invested in private credit and c.83% is invested on behalf of institutional investors.

Qualitas will co-invest up to A$25 million2 over the life of the A$550 million mandate.

Andrew Schwartz, Group Managing Director and Co-Founder of Qualitas, said:

The Australian CRE private credit sector continues to attract allocations from global institutional investors and pleasingly Qualitas has achieved another record year of capital raising with net A$2.5 billion raised since 30 June 2023. We believe this new mandate, our first from an institutional investor based in North America, is a testament to our track record and increasing scale of our asset management platform, which enables us to deploy at scale for the right investment opportunities.”

Authorised for release by the Board of Directors of the Company.
