Our fundamental strategy is to identify properties in prime locations, both well let and those that would benefit from our active asset management, and to invite suitable parties to participate in their acquisition via unit holdings in a managed trust.

Our transparency, consistency and intensive hands-on asset management approach is at the heart of our business. Benlee has aligned itself with investors by significantly co investing in every deal offered to investors since inception. This has been rewarded by loyal investor support over many years, we have fostered strong relationships with our investors and many continue to reinforce their trust and support by investing in multiple Benlee products and projects.
