Property Income Fund

Primewest Property Income Fund

Primewest have added a new dimension to our investment offering with our first open-ended, unlisted fund, open to retail investors – Primewest Property Income Fund (PPIF or the Fund).

The Fund has been established to provide investors with a more flexible investment product where Investors can, subject to liquidity, participate in a limited monthly withdrawal facility should they wish to redeem their investment. Investors are also offered the opportunity to regularly add to their investment by acquiring additional ordinary units in the Fund.

It is also intended to provide investors with monthly income with the potential for capital growth. PPIF aims to achieve this by investing in a diversified and growing portfolio of commercial property assets located in Australia. PPIF may invest in a property directly, or indirectly, via investing in other property funds. It is also intended for PPIF to invest a portion of its assets in liquid investments, such as interests in A-REITs.

14     What is an open-ended unlisted fund?

Unlisted funds issue you with units in a trust. They are not quoted on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), or any other exchange, and they cannot be traded on the ASX or any other exchange at any time.

Open-ended means that investors can continually top up their investments at any time and the fund can continue to issue units to Investors. The fund can then acquire new properties to diversify the portfolio.

An open-ended fund does not have a fixed term, which means it can continue to grow over a longer duration.

15    What are the benefits of investing in the Fund ?

The benefits of investing in the Fund :

Income paid monthly

Growth – by investing in a varied portfolio of assets, the Fund aims to achieve long term capital growth.

Diversification – The strategy for the Fund is to build a diverse portfolio of assets across office, industrial, healthcare, social infrastructure, and retail property assets.

Liquidity – Although property is normally a long-term investment, a benefit of the Fund is our intention to offer investors the opportunity to withdraw part of their investment at select intervals (subject to Fund liquidity and the terms as per the PDS).

16 What are the risks of investing in the Fund?

Property Investment Risks can include:

Values and sale prices – the ongoing value of a property is influenced by many factors including supply, demand, rentals, lease terms, government regulation and legislation, property markets, and of course economic conditions.

Revenue – the Fund’s income will be largely dependent upon tenants paying rent in accordance with lease terms. We have a leasing team whose job it is to ensure properties always remain tenanted.

Acquisitions – we will seek to progressively acquire a diversified portfolio of commercial property assets for the Fund. Our highly experienced Asset Management Team will ensure that all acquisitions will be made thoughtfully.

Capital expenditure – Capital expenditure will be required to maintain the assets in the Fund’s portfolio. We typically have an allowance for capital expenditure when managing the Fund’s properties.

Environmental – Property income or valuations of the Fund’s properties could be adversely affected by the discovery of an environmental contamination. Our role as asset managers is to ensure the Fund’s properties are always correctly looked after, and environmental inspections are carried out in our due diligence procedures prior to purchase.

Development – Development of properties can be very profitable but not without risk. If the Fund invests in development assets, then we will work to ensure all risks are minimized.

Fund Investment Risks can include:

Liquidity – Investors can request a withdrawal of their investment in the Fund in limited circumstances.  While we intend to offer investors a limited monthly withdrawal facility and a periodic withdrawal facility after five years, we are under no obligation to do so.  There may be circumstances where we are unable to offer investors an opportunity to redeem their investment in part or at all.

Debt – The Fund will have debt. Debt will magnify the effect of any movements in the value of the Property.

Interest rates – Interest rates on debt and deposit facilities may rise and fall. Changes in interest rates can affect Fund distributions negatively or positively.

Please see Section 6 of the PDS for a full list of the risks that apply to an investment in the Fund.
