Fund Overview

The Barwon individual subordinated debt and preference equity property 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, typically benefitting from the security of a second ranking mortgage.  All investments benefit from a preferential return over ordinary equity.

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

The majority of these investments are subordinated to major Australian banks to which Barwon typically has an existing relationship with. Further, Barwon’s focus on providing these facilities to experienced property owners and developers improves the low-risk profile of the investments.
