strategy-circle-icon

STRATEGY & BUSINESS MODEL

Our focus is on unlocking value in urban spaces. The purpose of this is to maintain and grow distribution to our shareholders. We do this by growing our existing portfolio and focusing on redeveloping and upgrading properties. We continue to investigate new frontiers at all times.

 
 
 
WE USE OUR BUSINESS MODEL TO UNLOCK AND CREATE VALUE FOR OUR STAKEHOLDERS, BEYOND ONLY FINANCIAL RETURN

OCTODEC’S SIX CAPITALS

WE USE OUR BUSINESS MODEL TO UNLOCK VALUE BY USING OUR FINANCIAL, HUMAN, SOCIAL AND RELATIONSHIP, MANUFACTURED, INTELLECTUAL AND NATURAL CAPITAL TO BUILD A SUSTAINABLE, PROFITABLE BUSINESS AND CREATE VALUE FOR OUR STAKEHOLDERS, BEYOND ONLY FINANCIAL RETURN.

Each of the six capitals consists of resources and relationships, which are constantly being increased, decreased and transformed through our activities. They include the inputs, activities, outputs and outcomes of our business model.

six capitals graphic

financial capital


Octodec’s financial resources include cash generated from rental income and the resources we obtain from equity, debt funding and the proceeds from the recycling of properties.

manufactured capital


We use our manufactured capital, which includes the properties, infrastructure and equipment we own, to grow our financial capital by generating rental income.

human capital


The individual skills competencies and experience of our people, their safety, health, wellbeing and motivation make up our stock of human capital.

intellectual capital


Our collective expertise and processes and the strategies, policies, procedures, standards and codes that govern how we do business make up our stock of intellectual capital and provide us with a competitive advantage.

social and relationship capital


The relationships Octodec has established through its engagement with its tenants, suppliers, employees, government and business partners are central to our business, as are the contributions we make to the long-term sustainability of the communities in which we operate.

natural capital


As members of the Green Building Council, we are committed to greater environmental responsibility and the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies.

OPERATING STRUCTURE

Efficient property and asset management is central to our business model, which differs from that of most property companies. The diversity of our portfolio, with over 14 500 tenants in residential units, retail shops and shopping malls, offices and industrial properties, mitigates the risk of losing one large tenant, but it requires the administrative ability to handle high volumes.
