Denison Diversified Property Fund
CEO’s Update Quarterly Update- 31 March 2015
Dear Investors,
Denison Funds Management Limited (‘Denison’) as
responsible entity for the Denison Diversified
Property Fund (‘DDPF’ or ‘Fund’), is pleased to
present Investors an update on their investment in
Asset Management Update
During the March Quarter, we have undertaken
significant capital works across the portfolio. This has
included the completion of exterior painting at the
Blacktown asset and the replacement of a large
awning at the Campbelltown asset. We believe this
has significantly improved the appearance and value
of these assets.
During this quarter, we have been successful in
securing new and existing tenants across the portfolio
in what has proven to be a challenging leasing market
for the start of 2015.
Notably we have renewed the existing major tenant,
Department of Community Services, at Shellharbour
for a new 4-year lease term. They occupy 1,318 sqm
at Shellharbour, which represents 42% of the total
net lettable area (NLA) at this asset.
We have also been successful in leasing the last
remaining vacant space at the Artarmon asset. The
new tenant, Prime constructions have leased 1,195
sqm for 6 years. We are pleased to confirm Artarmon
is now 100% occupied with a strong 5-year weighted
average lease expiry (WALE).

Market Update
National Overview
Over the last six months, commodity prices have collapsed from their 2014 highs pushing volatility into the
domestic economy and triggering difficulties for both government and business. Given the commodity price
driven nature of the Australian economy, monetary policy is beginning to play a central role in stimulating the
domestic economy with staggered rate cuts in 2015. The drop in Australian interest rates have driven
investors’ appetite for yield and they are investigating alternate asset classes. Commercial, industrial, retail,
and residential property have benefited from this monetary stimulus with cap rate compression a core
depiction of the general property market. In more detail, the property market is divided between mining and
non-mining states, showing Sydney and Melbourne continuing to outperform Brisbane and Perth.
Limited CBD buying opportunities as well as investors risk appetites are increasing property values in the
secondary CBD office, metro office, and industrial markets. The suburban property sectors within Australia are
currently undergoing a valuation shift, reflecting the limited supply and a move to CBD periphery markets. The
differential between the prime, secondary and suburban markets are beginning to tighten with suburban
properties showing the strongest compression ratios within the last six months. Rental growth is forecasted to
remain flat in the near term and valuation increases accredited to cap rate compression rather than underlying
property fundamentals.
