About Asciental Property Group

Privately owned. National presence.

Asciential Property Group takes its name from key aspects of our success formula: acquisition of assets that will ascend in value consistently and reliably over decades using an effective blend of science (systematic research) and the six essential elements of property investing.

While many Australians think about their future, few plan their future in a structured and informed way.  Many don't think about how much they'll need, or how to achieve enough wealth to comfortably live after retirement. This is where we help. Asciential helps you develop a strategic path forward to support financial independence through property investment.

Our platform comprises:

  1. An investment strategy developed using more than fifty years of combined experience. 

  2. A unique investment matrix that facilitates precision investing. The result is consistent and reliable growth and cash flow. 

  3. Superior build quality. APG's building partners provide buildings that are specifically designed for investment. Independent professional property managers consistently report that the superior build quality makes the properties easier to rent.

Our building partners

Asciential maintains a strong network of industry partners, enabling us to provide our clients with exclusive access to off-market deals, emerging markets, and other investment opportunities. We prioritize building long-term relationships with our clients, offering ongoing support, market updates, and portfolio optimization strategies to help them achieve their investment goals.

Quality, form, function, style.

Asciential Property Group has partnered with some of the best builders in the Australian building industry nationally.  For example, The Prime Group has been in business for over 50 years, the last 35 years under the directorship of Joe Passione.  Winners of multiple HIA Home of the Year awards and a Heritage Restoration award, Prime has completed over AUD$4.0 billion worth of developments including over 18,000 homes across Australia.  


Our panel of independent builders specialise in producing “full turn-key” investment properties in premium residential locations that reflect the six Asciential elements of the Asciential Property Group investment model.

This means that, upon completion, the builder can hand you the keys to your new investment property, and you can hand them to your property manager, who can hand them to your tenant - all on the same day.  There is nothing else to do.


This, combined with "after handover” service that is second to none in the business, make building your brand new investment property a rewarding and stress-free experience.


You don’t need to take our word for it.  Ask your Asciential Portfolio Manager to put you in touch with a client who has built an investment home with an APG approved independent builder.

Peter Ward Profile Image from Asciential Property Group

Peter’s experience in property investment is the result of a career journey that has unfolded over 40+ years.  He earned his stripes in the financial services industry where he learned lots about what’s important to people, how much misinformation there is out in the world of property, and how little average Aussie investors knew about it. 

As part of that journey, he held management roles where his achievements included expanding a company interstate.  Recognising there was a gap in the market for property acquisition advice backed by science and other essential elements, he saw an opportunity to use his education and financial skills to make a difference by helping Aussie investors to make informed choices – and so Asciential was born.

Today, Peter is one of the most experienced property investment professionals in Australia - and is one of the few QPIA's (Qualified Property Investment Advisor) whose business focuses solely on property investment advising in a values-driven way. 


He holds an Honours Degree in Education, post graduate qualifications in project management and e-learning, and has been a Justice of the Peace for over 40 years.

His interests include spending time with his family, music and singing, getting close to nature and fitness.
