ABOUT MARPROP

Marprop exceeds performance hurdles by identifying market dislocation and mispricing opportunities, then developing and revitalising assets. Our goal is to create superior workplace experiences for our tenant customers, by providing ‘beyond grade’ amenity levels, which in turn drives portfolio performance. Since inception we have developed, invested and divested over $900M of real estate assets, while delivering returns substantially beyond market benchmarks.

What We Do:

  • Invest in commercial real estate, primarily focussed on investment grade assets located in the capital cities across Australia’s east coast.
  • Co-invest alongside wholesale capital from Family offices, Endowment funds, Institutional Capital and Pension Funds.
  • Provide investors with a strong history of above-market, risk-adjusted returns, benchmarked on industry standards.

How We Do It:

  • A single team is responsible for the development of an investment strategy, deal origination and execution, active asset management and final divestment.
  • Well-developed investment strategies based on thorough research and analysis.
  • Being real estate entrepreneurs developing, re-inventing and activating assets.
  • Continuously evolving, learning and enhancing our management of assets

Origins:
Marprop Real Estate Partners, originally known as Marshall Property Partners, was founded in late 2007 by James Marshall. From its early days of offering real estate advice to corporate and investment clients, the company has grown into a fully-fledged real estate investor and fund manager with proven development capability.

From 2012 -2017 Andre Biet joined Marprop as Chairman and was instrumental in setting up institutional investment side of the business. Andre was a co-founder of the Charter Hall Group where he served as Managing Director and CEO for 17 years from inception until listing the company on the ASX in 2004. He retired from the Charter Hall Group in 2007.

 

Philosophy:
The original philosophy upon which Marprop was founded remains in place to this day; ‘offering the highest level of service, professionally and with integrity’. We view our tenants as our customers and place a very high value on clients, investors and our people.

ENVIRONMENTAL, SOCIAL & GOVERNANCE

We believe that principles are neither policies nor objectives. Rather, we view our principles as determining how we deal with our people, our clients, broader community and environment. At Marprop we place enormous emphasis on respect and honesty. Respect for our colleagues, our clients, our ecosystem and unremitting honesty in how we do business.

Sustainability. A critical consideration:’

Real estate is central to urban development, consumes physical resources and is a significant source of emissions.  Equally, it is central to the goal of creating an environmentally sustainable future. World Economic Forum, Dec 2016

Marprop holds a strong belief that active ESG is a value-add to our business operations, not a compliance issue to be overcome.  With our asset management principal of providing ‘beyond grade’ experiences for our tenants, enhancing the sustainability features of our portfolio goes hand in hand with this philosophy and is a critical component in its achievement.  It is our experience that such a focus is highly coveted, if not demanded, by our tenants.  As such, Marprop’s goal is to exceed global ESG standards at every possible opportunity.   

Social Responsibility:

The way we and other corporates do business, impacts not just the environment but also society at large.  We strive to achieve a sensible balance between maximising benefits for our stakeholders, whilst at the same time minimising our impact on the environment.  Marprop encourages and supports ongoing education for its team, supports Australian charitable organisations financially and is actively involved in industry bodies and other charitable activities.
