Stronghold is a boutique, Brisbane based, commercial property investment manager. We’ve been helping our clients optimise their commercial property investment goals since 2013.
Our team of property professionals provide access to a suite of complimentary services, which are built around a core investment philosophy and focused by our specialisation in business precincts. Since our inception in 2013 we have successfully created 15 investment trusts and currently have over $250m in assets under management.
At Stronghold, we believe in fostering long-term profitable relationships.
Stronghold is the Investment Management arm of the Graystone Group, an end-to-end property company that not only develops real estate in its own capacity, but also provides Construction, Development Management, Property Management and Investment Management services.
With this breadth of in-house knowledge across the Group we believe we are better equipped than most at identifying and managing risk specific to our specialised sectors.
Our ability to anticipate and manage risk is fundamental to delivering consistent and sustainable distributions to our investors.
Stronghold’s investment strategies look to add value at each stage of the investment life cycle.
The breadth of knowledge and capabilities across the Group ensures that all key investment decisions are considered in their entirety.
Our leadership group brings over 60 years of property expertise, including specialisation in business precinct developments and industrial projects. This market knowledge, and our robust relationships with key builder partners, ensures we invest in assets that meet our rigorous standards for long-term value creation.
Our acquisition team has a proven track record of successfully sourcing and acquiring high-quality properties at attractive valuations, enhancing our portfolio and delivering investment objectives. Our unique pipeline of opportunities includes off-market assets, strategically sourced through the Graystone Group.
A close relationship with our sister company Milestone grants access to the latest asset management best practice, and gives our properties the best chance of consistent returns through hands-on cost minimisation, high occupancy rates and tenant retention.
Stronghold’s intent is always to unlock additional value in ways which go beyond traditional strategies. We do this by identifying forward-thinking improvements and opportunities, which actively consider innovation, practical technologies, access and connectedness.
What our Investors say
I was looking for diversification in my self-managed superannuation fund, so I decided to allocate part of the fund to unlisted property trusts. I liked the Stronghold trust, I liked the properties they were offering, and I was confident in the management.
A well-established hardworking fund has now emerged as an outright winner, with its fabulous spread of quality properties providing investors with regular and reliable incomes.
I'm a firm believer in holding onto property and that's Stronghold's strength. They identify quality assets, manage them well and provide a strong return to investors in the process.
Unit trusts like the one's Stronghold put together give you the ability to size up and reduce your risk, by investing a smaller amount in the multiple properties rather than all for one. The team at Stronghold are easy to deal with and, above all, come across as well informed and genuine – I have found them to be a great partner to work with.
Stronghold have met my expectation … with the result that I've now reinvested three further times in their trusts over the last 10 years.
One of the things that give me a stronger belief in what Stronghold does, is the yield that they provide and how many properties they have under management, as well as how often they come back to you with more opportunities.
I like them because of their management structure, and because they’re very transparent in terms of their fee structure. I think that the small dynamic executive team of Stronghold are the right balance between being too entrepreneurial and too top heavy.
Dr. John Cox
I initially invested in Stronghold Investments as there is safety in investing with a group that puts their own money into properties that they build and manage.
The concept of the unlisted trust gives me access to a larger class of assets, and the returns they deliver on a regular basis outweigh what I could achieve investing myself. The realisation of a recent asset is further testament to their ability to provide strong returns to their clients.
