SPEAKING AT: Portfolio Construction Forum Markets Summit 2024 on the acute need for housing

29 April 2024

At the Portfolio Construction Forum Markets Summit 2024, our Head of Income Credit, Mark Power discussed the massive disconnect between demand and supply in Australia’s housing market.

With residential vacancy rate at a record low and net overseas migration at a record high, it has never been more apparent that Australia needs a long-term housing solution to help expand supply. With rigorous capital provisioning models placed upon major banks following the GFC, the banks can no longer participate in the market like they used to, providing greater opportunity for real estate private credit lenders to fill the gap. This all combines to help generate attractive risk-adjusted returns for investors in the asset class.

Watch Mark’s full presentation to discover how real estate private credit lenders like Qualitas will play a pivotal role in providing financing solutions into the undersupplied residential sector and how investors may be able to consequently generate attractive risk-adjusted returns.
