Property for Industry

Property for Industry (PFI) is New Zealand’s only listed property vehicle focused on the industrial sector. We first listed in 1994, and more than twenty years on, we have over 5,000 shareholders and a portfolio of over 90 properties valued at over $1.2 billion dollars.

There are three reasons investors attracted to industrial property become PFI shareholders. The first is scale. Scale gives us credibility: PFI attracts superior tenants who only partner with a landlord they have confidence will be there for the long haul. The second is diversity. Diversity provides resilience and resilience ensures stability. Inevitably, tenants come and go, but when—as we do—you have around 90 properties in your portfolio you still achieve consistent returns. The third is expertise. Our expertise is key.  Because we specialise in industrial property, we know the market, we are known in the market, and we understand industrial tenants’ needs.  As a result, our portfolio is fit and healthy and able to perform at its peak.

PFI’s scale, diversity and expertise deliver strong stable returns for our investors. We enable shareholders to put their money to work—out where the work gets done—playing an important part in helping New Zealand enterprise succeed.
