Working for you since 1976

Established in 1976 as the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) and re-launched as The Property Council of New Zealand in April 1999, our organisation was instrumental in forging a new industry with a clear identity, purpose and increasing political influence.

Decades of industry knowledge

Our research provides relevant and timely information to help members in commercial property operations and assist them in their financial decision making. In 1994, Property Council established an Investment Performance Index containing information from 20 of New Zealand’s leading property owners and managers. Since then, it has become the country’s most credible direct property index, published quarterly in conjunction with global research company, Investment Property Databank (IPD).
