Australian unlisted property funds delivered average total returns of 23.4 per cent in 2017, compared with a return of just 7.7 per cent for Australian equities. Maarten Broek of MCSI stated that the strong performance of unlisted property funds was aided by factors such as rental growth and investor demand, while he noted that yields had contracted in recent years. Australian direct property also performed well in 2017, with a total return of 11.9 per cent.
