On 9 September 2003 Dawn Properties became the first VRLS investment property holding company to be listed on the Zimbabwe Stock Exchange.
Dawn Properties provides investors with an opportunity to invest in a collection of sought after hotel properties. The counter is not only a good inflation and currency hedge but also has the potential to generate strong cash flows and high yields.
The group is well represented in all major tourist destinations. Although the fact that the group has a predominant tourism exposure is of concern to some investors, it is equally important to note that it is a sector that never ceases to attract the attention of international investors even in hard times.
This probably gives the properties a premium ahead of other property classes such as industrial property, for example. Nevertheless, the Group has taken a view to further diversify the portfolio at the earliest opportune time.
