Augusta Capital Limited is an NZX Listed Property Funds Manager that is the market leader in its sector. The company was founded in 2001 by Managing Director and largest shareholder, Mark Francis.
Augusta Capital now has two distinct divisions. Direct property investment, whereby it holds and manages a core portfolio of office and car parking properties in central Auckland, valued at approximately $100 million.
The other division is Funds Management, where it is the market leader in commercial property syndication. In April of 2014, through their subsidiary Augusta Funds Management, Augusta acquired their largest competitor, KCL Property Limited which brings their funds under management to over $1.7 Billion across 110 properties throughout New Zealand and Australia. The company’s strategy is to consolidate its position as New Zealand’s premier property fund manager, growing that side of the business both organically through the syndication of assets and the creation of new property funds, and by business acquisition if and when such opportunities arise.
