Published 4 January 2006


Small Melbourne-based listed property trust, the Rabinov Diversified Property Trust, boosted its portfolio value by 5.66% in December with $A8.8 million of revaluation gains.



Rabinov has 16 properties worth $A156 million, which will grow to $A216 million after it completes acquisition of a third building currently being constructed for GE and due for completion in early 2006.


The trust has 5 commercial, 3 retail & 8 industrial properties, not all valued annually. The Suncorp-Metway property in Toowoomba, Queensland, last valued at $A5.95 million in December 2002, increased by 21.7% to $A7.6 million and the Air International property in Campbellfield, Victoria, increased by 17.5% to $A20 million.


The trust’s founder,Ezriel Rabinowicz (known as Mr Rabinov), built up a supermarket portfolio in the 80s, selling them to Macquarie Bank Ltd in 1994. They formed the basis of the Macquarie CountryWide Property Trust. The group then built up a diversified portfolio of 16 properties, most of which were sold in 2000-01 to GE Capital Real Estate.


The present trust was established in 1998 and was listed in 2003.

Rabinov doubles portfolio by buying GE’s Australian HQ

The Rabinov Diversified Property Trust has contracted to buy GE’s Australian headquarters from Rmac Australia on a yield of about 7% after acquisition costs.


Although the price wasn’t given, managing director Ronald Serry said once the transactions were completed late next year with construction of a 3rd GE building, Rabinov’s $101 million portfolio would “approximately double”.


The GE building is in the Botanicca Corporate Park in Richmond, 4km from the Melbourne cbd. Rmac is a joint venture between property developer R Corp & Macquarie Bank.


GE occupies 2 buildings totalling 10,250m², with expansion potential to nearly 19,000m², and has committed to the 3rd 14,400m² building. The American company is on 14-year leases and will line up a 12-year lease for its new building.


The Rabinov trust has been running for 6 years and has 15 properties (8 industrial, 4 office, 3 retail) spread around Australia.


The trust is named after Ezriel Rabinowicz (known as Mr Rabinov), who built up a supermarket portfolio in the 80s, selling them to Macquarie Bank Ltd in 1994. They formed the basis of the Macquarie Countrywide Property Trust.


The group then built up a diversified portfolio of 16 properties, most of which were sold in 2000-01 to GE Capital Real Estate.


The trust’s management company is chaired by Ray Schoer, former head of Australia’s National Companies & Securities Commission. Managing director Mr Serry is a Melbourne lawyer who acted for Mr Rabinov before the trust was established.
