How does it work?

The fund aims to deliver regular income from a diversified, and conservative, portfolio of debt secured by real estate. The portfolio of loans is primarily secured by registered first ranking mortgages held over Australian property, mostly on the east coast of Australia. The loans finance a mix of real estate development, construction and ownership.

Real estate debt is not dissimilar to traditional bank debt. The lender, in Freehold's case, the fund, provides capital to finance the purchase of land, or for the development or redevelopment of a property and in return, receives interest on the loan. The interest on the loan is paid to the fund either monthly, quarterly, or capitalised and paid at the end of the loan term. Each month, the fund collects the interest paid from borrowers and distributes net income as distributions to investors. The fund targets an annualised net return to investors of between 7 - 8%.

Looking ahead in real estate debt

Over the next 6 - 12 months, there will be less housing stock released into a government stimulated market with improving consumer sentiment. We see these as positive signs for the real estate debt sector as this should protect capital values, and bring new projects to market. For investors, this is likely to mean an increased number of opportunities where it will be essential to focus on quality and product best aligned to consumer demand.
