    For the love of retail, when a bit of TLC, vision and a well-executed plan generates a 24% investment return.

    Value Hunting

    We really love retail property at the moment at MP Funds Management because we see opportunity in the disruption. Australia’s population is growing, our living is getting denser and whilst the advent of online shopping is creating change in the sector, human behaviour causes us to gravitate towards food and entertainment. Whilst some of the retail tenants may be outmoded or a centre underperforming as a result of this evolution, it’s fair to say that well-located and underperforming CBD- located centres, which have a strong demographical catchment area can be turned around with some TLC and well thought out repositioning.

    Barefoot and fancy free at Soneva Fushi in the Maldives

    The Property Addict / Luxury Lifestyle

    Standing on a sandbank off Soneva Fushi, a smear of white in a sea of crystal azure water, as the setting sun lights the sky brilliant shades of purple, pink, orange and blue, the bubbles from my champagne tickle my nose as I take a sip from the cold flute, my bare toes dig into the cool, soft white powdery sand. There is a hum of laughter and chatter carried in the evening breeze as the sandbank cocktail party hits its stride, mojitos and champagne flow and beautiful people pose together giggling and chatting between snapping sunset selfies on smartphones. The atmosphere is playful, relaxed, elegant. The crowd is a mix of ages and accents; some silver hair, young families, honeymooners and a few larger groups with extended family. They chatter quietly and admire the spectacular sunset, faces glow after a healthy dose of sun and the Soneva “Barefoot, Slow Life”.
