QRI Market and Portfolio Update – September quarter 2020

22 October 2020

The Qualitas Real Estate Income Fund (ASX:QRI) September 2020 quarter portfolio update is now available. You can view this latest update in the ASX Announcement.

Hear from our Group Managing Director, Andrew Schwartz and Director, Real Estate, Nick Bullick as they discuss the commercial real estate (“CRE”) debt market current operating environment including opportunities and the resilience of QRI’s portfolio performance.


As investors search for yield and capital stability in an uncertain environment, QRI continues to seek to deliver investors benefits including:

  • Fixed income in the form of regular monthly cash distributions [1]
  • Attractive and healthy premiums [2] above the current low RBA Cash Rate with a September quarter (3-month) net return and distribution return of 6.23% p.a. and 6.05% p.a. respectively
  • Capital preservation, as all CRE loans enjoy security by way of real property mortgages
  • Stable net asset value at or above $1.60 with no impairments since the IPO or during COVID-19, supported by the Trust’s simple and robust loan valuation process
  • CRE debt asset class differentiation managed by a local property specialist with expertise in investing across both real estate debt and equity
  • Domestically focused investments with 100% of the portfolio currently invested in Australia only

We remain vigilant of the continuing COVID-19 risks both on a global and domestic level and as a deeply experienced manager of CRE debt, we are proactively managing the QRI portfolio to mitigate against loan performance risks.


[1] The payment of monthly cash income is a goal of the Trust only and neither the Manager or the Responsible Entity provide any  representation or warranty (whether express or implied) in relation to the payment of any monthly cash income.
[2] Returns are not guaranteed. The premium achieved is commensurate to the investment risk undertaken.
