Investment and advisory company Stronghold Investment Services was established in 2013 as a vehicle to hold properties at completion. Stronghold offers superior commercial property investment management and advisory services to a wide range of private and institutional investors, major corporations, private companies and government agencies. As a specialised business park fund manager with over AUD $180m in A-grade assets under management, Stronghold has performed strongly across this specialised asset class, consistently achieving cash returns for investors of between 8.5% and 11% per annum.
The company’s successful investment model allows wholesale investors to pool their equity to purchase larger properties that provide relatively higher, and stable returns. When leveraged there is potential to further enhance these returns.
Commercial and industrial property investments generally offer different risk and return parameters in comparison to other investment options such as bank deposits and shares. Stronghold seeks to minimise risk and maximise returns by applying expert knowledge and insights in the places we live and work.
