Interesting concept, not sure if a derivative is such a good idea with so many shortsellers out there already.

In their PDS I don't see how they show the LPT sector as the highest performing sector out of all classes..
Are you referring to Graph 1, page 11 of the PDS?
This graph shows that retail property, listed property, residential property and shares all return an average of over 12% pa. Like I've said in other posts, as long as your invested in growth assets you'll win in the end.
If your referring to Graph 2 on the same page, I would say that the PDS date is 26 September 2006, it would be very interesting to see more up-to-date figures
I can't believe there is still a thread about people saying whether shares or property are better. I think both is important for diversification and both can be leveraged 100% (some forum members haven't stumbled across Perpetual Investment Series and Macquarie Protected Loans which can be leveraged to 100% just like a property loan with a 100% LVR). Also think Long Term Capital Management which LVR'd to the max (and messed up!).
I'm hoping that other members will realise this soon.
