About GPT Group
The GPT Group (GPT) is one of Australia’s largest diversified property groups and a top 50 ASX listed company by market capitalisation. GPT owns and manages a $24 billion portfolio of offices, logistics, business parks and prime shopping centres across Australia. The Group also has a substantial investor base with more than 32,000 shareholders.
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.
