Australian Education Trust (“AET”) is the largest Australian listed property trust investing in early learning properties within Australia and New Zealand. At 31 December 2012 the Trust had total assets under management of approximately $362.9 million and 327 properties in its portfolio.
AET's early learning properties are typically standalone, purpose built and located at high flow-through traffic locations primarily in metropolitan and major regional areas. The Fund's properties are located in a broad geographic spread, minimising risk and benefitting from any positive movement in underlying land values. As evidenced recently, relative to other asset classes, movements in value for early learning assets is significantly less volatile than for more traditional commercial assets.
The objectives of the Trust are outlined in the 'About Us' section. We recommend that potential and existing investors familiarise themselives with these objectives.
