Investment summary

Picton is invested in a diversified portfolio of 52 properties, with a current over-weighting of the regional office and industrial sectors, and a significantly underweight exposure to retail and leisure sectors (with no shopping centres). Picton describes its strategy as occupier-focused and opportunity-led, recycling capital where opportunities exist for better risk-adjusted returns. It aims to be consistently among the best-performing diversified UK property companies on the main list of the London Stock Exchange, and has delivered portfolio NAV total return performance ahead of its benchmark over one, three, five and 10 years to end-FY17. Supported by a 1.9% like-for-like valuation increase, in the three months to 30 September (Q218), NAV per share rose 2.5% to 85.9p after payment of 0.85p in dividends in the quarter (3.5% NAV total return).

Industry outlook

Despite economic uncertainties, Brexit-related and otherwise, regional occupier demand is generally firm, driven by continuing economic growth and business relocation away from London, while new supply remains limited. Meanwhile, the yield spread between the regions and London remains historically wide at c 2%, compared with a 2008 market peak of c 0.5%, representing a clear potential for narrowing.
