Royal London UK Real Estate Fund

Fund overview

The Royal London UK Real Estate Fund (RLUKREF) provides the opportunity to invest immediately in a large, diversified portfolio of UK commercial property. The underlying portfolio has been built up and managed over several decades, giving investors access to a wide range of high quality, prime assets that individually would be difficult and time consuming to acquire as they rarely come to market. The combined assets of the Fund are around £3.2 billion, with an annual rental income in excess of £104 million (as at 31 December 2023, subject to rounding).

The RLUKREF invests in a balanced portfolio of UK real estate assets across all major sectors and regions. The portfolio fund manager aims to balance the income from core holdings with active management through the life cycle of each asset wherever required to enhance the value of the portfolio. The fund is designed to perform well under a range of market conditions, through investment in a high-quality portfolio of long-term, prime UK property assets. The portfolio has a strong concentration of Central London Office assets. 

Fund objective

The fund's objective is to outperform the return of the All Balanced Funds component of the MSCI/AREF UK Quarterly Property Fund Index.

Minimum investment

This fund is suitable for sophisticated investors only with a minimum investment of £50 million.

Product risk warning

Property-based pooled vehicles, such as the Fund, invest in real property, the value of which is generally a matter of a valuer’s opinion. It may be difficult to deal in the shares of the Fund or to sell them at a reasonable price because the underlying property may not be readily saleable, thus creating liquidity risk.
