Fund Overview

The Barwon individual first mortgage property debt funds (the Funds) are a series of individual Closed-ended funds for wholesale investors.  The Funds earn returns from debt facilities provided to Australian property, with the security of a registered first-ranking mortgage.

Each individual Fund is limited to a specific debt opportunity which may lie within any of a range of sectors and locations across Australia.  In addition to this, the Fund will typically invest within a specific stage of property lifecycle from early stage site acquisition, through to completed residual stock and bridging facilities for existing commercial properties.

The property debt sector has seen significant growth in recent years and has provided stable risk-adjusted returns relative to other property sectors.  Further, Barwon’s focus on providing debt facilities to experienced property owners and developers goes to enhancing the low-risk profile of the investments.
