1. Listed Property Trust2. Mirvac Group2.1 Brief HistoryMirvac Group is a leading diversified property group in Australia with a market capitalization more than $4 billion. It was established in 1972 and, today, its investment property portfolio is spread all across Australia (Mirvac Group, 25 March 2005).One of the most important facts in Mirvac Group's history was happened on 15 June 1999 when the former three Mirvac entities (Mirvac Limited, Mirvac Property Trust, and Capital Property Trust) agreed to merge and form a Mirvac Group stapled security.
