Regular Income

Distributions are paid monthly or can be reinvested into the Fund.

Investment Returns

The Fund targets a return between 8.25% and 9.25% per annum, post fees and expenses. Utilisation of PrivateInvest Underwriting allows the Fund cash to be retained at desired levels to avoid diluting investors returns. The Fund has met its target returns since inception with no impairments, loss of capital loss.

Yield Quality and Stability

First mortgage security aligned with a rigorous credit approval process and properly priced lending interest rates that supports stable investment distributions.

Diversification and Loan Origination

The Fund’s strategy is to invest in an Australian national portfolio of loans, providing diversification by asset type, class, borrower, market location and entry timing. Privatelnvest has a national database of finance brokers that provide a consistent flow of new loans for credit assessment.

Low on Risk Curve

Average weighted sub 65% LVR and supported by Directors or personal guarantees, which further hedges default recovery and downside risk in declining markets.

The Fund has had no loss of capital or impairment in its history since inception.

Portfolio Repayment Strategy
