Quintessential Equity wins 2018 RICs Oceania Property Fund of the Year award
Quintessential Equity is proud to have been named 2018 Property Fund of the Year in recognition of factors including financial performance, professionalism, ethics, teamwork and sustainability.

They (Quintessential Equity) made social contributions to benefit small businesses in the local community as well as educating government tenants on critical elements throughout the process,” the judges said.
