Chair and CEO review

We entered the year with a clear strategy and readiness to respond to both market opportunities and challenges.

Our focus on maintaining a leading position in the Australian property market has been achieved through delivering strong financial results underpinned by the performance of our portfolio, selective acquisitions where we could add value, growth in our funds management business and the delivery of trading profits.

We are focused on creating sustained value and making decisions that future-proof the business.”

This year we have adopted elements of integrated reporting to enhance the way we report to our investors and demonstrate our focus on long-term value creation. We also defined our organisational purpose, which reinforces our reason for being in business. It is a key anchor for employee engagement and attracting talent, and will align our decision making to values and principles beyond financial outcomes.
