Company news

Investment summary

In a successful FY18, Picton Property Income again outperformed the MSCI IPD Quarterly Benchmark property return, as it has now done over one, three, five and 10 years while moderate gearing enhanced the EPRA NAV total return to 14.9%. Rental growth and valuation gains were strongest in industrial and office assets, towards which Picton’s portfolio has a strong bias, while the underweight exposure to retail was beneficial. A general supply and demand imbalance in regional office and industrial property continues to support rent growth, while ERV is well ahead of the current contracted run rate and represents significant potential for income growth. Plans to convert to UK REIT status later in the year should enhance future profitability, with no material impact on investment and portfolio strategy.

Industry outlook

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, representing a clear potential for narrowing.
