Our strategy

Delivering superior risk-adjusted returns for investors

Dexus's strategy is to deliver superior risk-adjusted returns for investors from high-quality real estate and infrastructure assets.

Delivering superior risk-adjusted returns means outperforming the relevant three and five-year benchmarks in each market in which Dexus owns or manages properties while providing Dexus Security holders with sustainable and growing distributions.

We have two strategic objectives that underpin this strategy:

  • Resilient income streams: Investing in assets that provide resilience through-the-cycle
  • Investment manager of choice: Expanding and diversifying the funds management business

Our strategic approach


Generating sustainable income streams

Real estate investment partner of choice

We have built a fully integrated real asset investment platform and are focused on leveraging our cross-sector investment, asset management and development expertise to enhance capital efficiency of returns for Dexus investors, while remaining true to our identity as a long-term investor in high-quality Australian assets.

Our scale supports the generation of investment outperformance for both Dexus investors and our third party capital partners through providing valuable customer insights and the opportunity to invest in people, systems and technologies that enhance our customers’ experiences. It also enhances our ability to find the ideal workspace solution for customers and generates cost efficiencies.

Our objectives of generating resilient income streams and being identified as the investment manager of choice are complementary. Our success in the office sector has enabled Dexus to attract investment partners not just in office but also in the industrial, retail, healthcare and infrastructure sectors, in turn providing the opportunity to drive investment performance while obtaining scale in our core markets.

Our key business activities


Our strategy remains focused on our core strengths of owning, managing and developing high-quality real estate and infrastructure assets.

To generate superior risk-adjusted returns for investors, it is necessary that for each asset we own or manage, we maximise cash flow and unlock value over the investment lifecycle.

We do this through applying our transactional, asset and property management expertise to drive earnings and create value across three areas of focus: property portfolio, funds management and trading.
