Hume Partners Property

Hume Partners Property was borne in January 2015 out of two long standing property relationships within Taverners Group – Bennelong Property Funds Management (BPFM) and Brencorp Properties.

Since 2001, BPFM, led by Scott Davies, has been acquiring and managing a portfolio of commercial investment and development properties along Australia’s eastern seaboard. These properties are now 100% owned by Taverners Group and BPFM is owned by Hume Partners. Recently these activities have broadened to include a portfolio of health, aged care, tourism and childcare assets.

For over 30 years, Brencorp Properties, led by John Crosby, has been acquiring and managing a range of broad-acre residential sub-division development projects for Taverners Group. During this time, projects with an end value of over $1.0bn and comprising more than 3,000 housing lots have been developed and successfully sold. Current projects in Keysborough, Torquay and Lilydale involve over 5,000 housing blocks.

Both of these entities now come under the Hume Partners Property umbrella enabling Hume Partners to source investments across most property sectors.
