Core Plus Fund No. 1
(CPF No. 1)

Fund Overview
EG's Core Plus Fund invests in Australian real estate (office, retail, industrial) where EG can enhance returns through re-letting, capital expenditure programs and asset repositioning to secure increased rental returns and capital growth over the medium to long term.  

CPF1 was launched in 2014, with the heritage listed 223 Liverpool Street, Darlinghurst as its seed asset.  In keeping with the Core Plus strategy, the property provided EG the opportunity to add significant value to the building. An active leasing campaign, combined with the submission of a new Development Application served to modernise the internal areas in the highly desirable Sydney CBD fringe location.
Fund Term 10 years
Fund Status Closed
Fund Inception Date February 2014
Fund Size $400m


The strategy is being realised through the application of capital works, re-letting, active asset management and refurbishment of these assets with a view to increasing and stabilising net rental returns. Once repositioned the assets will be considered for divestment subject to the prevailing market conditions.
