GARDA operates an internalised asset and property management model through its wholly owned subsidiary real estate agency which provides a competitive operational point of difference to other managers. This structure ensures GARDA always maintains an unobstructed view and exposure to the Fund’s real estate assets and tenants. This enables GARDA to have a more hands on and dynamic asset management capability, as well as the often required agility to act swiftly within the tenant retention and leasing environments. This ability contributes to generating improved property income and capital value and ultimately results in greater investment returns.
