This Retail Investment Review provides a comprehensive look at the transaction activity, industry trends and key buyer groups that were active in 2019. Highlights for the year included the sales of 50% interests in three Super Prime Regional Shopping centres in three separate states, which reconfirmed that high quality centres underpinned by strong catchments and trading performance continued to attract strong yields. Australian retail property transaction levels are expected to remain strong in 2020 with strategic capital looking for opportunities in the market.
