A Listed Property Trusts (LPT's) is a collective investment
vehicle that owns a portfolio of real property. LPT's
are listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) and

your money is invested in bricks and mortar but at the

||Diversification - the investment risk is
spread across a number of properties and property
sectors such as office, retail or industrial.
||Liquidity - LPT's are listed on the ASX,
