GPT is a property group with broad access to capital invested in quality assets which, through proactive management, creates great customer experiences and superior returns.
Listed on the Australian Securities Exchange since 1971 the GPT Group is today one of Australia's largest diversified listed property groups. The Group has a substantial investor base, with more than 38,000 investors, is one of the top 50 stocks by market capitalisation and has $16.7 billion of assets under management.
The GPT Group was founded by the legendary Dick Dusseldorp as The General Property Trust in 1971.
It was Australia’s first Property Trust, managed by Lend Lease. This foundation provided an opportunity for ‘mum & dad’ and retail investors to own an interest in a portfolio of investment grade property assets.
Dusseldorp recognised the community of interest that existed between shareholders, employees and management and this became an enduring value in the group of companies he founded.
In 2005, GPT’s shareholders approved a proposal to internalise the management of the trust, therefore breaking away from Lend Lease to create the group as it is now.
Today, GPT is the owner and manager of a high quality portfolio of Australian office, logistics, business parks and prime shopping centre assets.
In keeping with the Dusseldorp heritage, GPT retains a strong focus on sustainability. This is showcased in the Group’s performance on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index.
