About Renaissance Property Securities Pty Ltd

Renaissance is a privately owned boutique Australian investment manager which specialises in the management of portfolios of properties securities listed on the Australian Stock Exchange.

Renaissance is 100% owned by AREIT directors, Carlos Cocaro and Damien Barrack, who founded the firm in 2003.

Renaissance is an active, intrinsic value style AREIT manager. The Renaissance investment philosophy is that each security has an underlying or intrinsic value and that securities become mispriced relative to this value and they seek to exploit such market inefficiencies.

Through dedicated in-depth research and disciplined investing, Renaissance seeks to profit over time via incremental trading in securities that have become mispriced relative to their underlying value.
