The GPT Group is a constituent of the S&P/ASX 50 with a substantial investor base of more than 32,000 securityholders.
The General Property Trust was launched as Australia’s first ever property trust when it was listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) in 1971.
The trust was launched and managed by Lendlease who wanted to provide retail investors the opportunity to invest in a portfolio of high quality commercial property assets.
In 2005, a proposal was put to shareholders for the management to be internalised. On approval, this resulted in GPT separating from Lendlease to become the independent company it is known as today.
