Oasis Crescent Property Fund (JSE:OAS)
Oasis Crescent Property Fund (JSE:OAS) is a well-diversified real estate investment trust (REIT) invested in South African direct property investments and high quality global listed REITs.
The Fund is focused on meeting all tenant needs and maintaining world class facilities. A key differentiator between the Fund and the rest of the listed REITs in South Africa is that it is one of the few, if not the only REIT, that has no debt. The absence of debt delivers a sustainable rate of growth during the normal course of operations but more importantly, the Fund is not exposed to the risk and negative effects of financial leverage during difficult times.
Oasis Crescent Property Fund is managed by Oasis Crescent Property Fund managers Limited (OCPFM). OCPFM is a regulated subsidiary within the Oasis Group, an independent financial services group headquartered in South Africa, with a 22-year track record. The Oasis Group is a signatory to the Principles of Responsible Investment (“PRI”) and as such all investment decisions made by the Fund are undertaken in accordance within the broader social responsibility paradigm of the Oasis Group.
The Fund is managed in accordance with responsible investment parameters to meet the needs of investors who specifically seek to invest in accordance with an Islamic-compliant mandate.
The objectives of the Fund include, inter alia:
- providing sustainable income and real returns to investors;
- providing an opportunity for unitholders to diversify their portfolio by investing in a liquid and transparent property fund within the regulated environment of the JSE;
- seeking to continually grow the portfolio into a leading portfolio of commercial, industrial and retail properties backed by international, national and government tenants; and
- developing and improving existing properties to their maximum potential.
