About Us

Established in 1989, Property Investment Research (PIR) is Australia's leading provider of property funds research and analysis. PIR tailors its insightful, accurate, and objective research to investors' diverse needs  - from the basic to the sophisticated. PIR's customers include investment managers, financial planners, stockbrokers, corporate advisers and property professionals, as well as individual investors.

PIR’s key products include research on listed A-REITs and unlisted property funds, a monthly investment monitor newsletter, and Australia’s largest and most comprehensive property funds database, actively updated in each year’s issue of the Australian Property Funds Industry Survey.

PIR changed its business model in 2011 to being subscription driven -- it does not receive a fee from property companies for product evaluation, research reports or recommendations. Our move to a subscription based model was driven by a desire to avoid recommendation bias and conflicts of interest with activities such as funds management and product distribution.
