At Funding, we understand the significance of keeping our investors well-informed and providing them with valuable tools to enhance their investment experience. Here, we delve into the key features and advantages of the Funding Income Trust that can empower your investment journey.

Understanding Pooled First-Mortgage Investment Funds

The Funding Income Trust is a pooled first-mortgage investment fund, a concept that combines the capital of multiple investors to collectively fund a diversified portfolio of first-mortgage assets. These mortgages serve as security for the loans provided, which allows the fund to offer attractive returns. This structure promotes diversification, risk mitigation and stable returns, making it a compelling option for those seeking to balance growth and security in their investment portfolios.

Here’s a closer look at the advantages when investing in our trust:

  1. Steady Returns: The Funding Income Trust provides a reliable source of income with our target returns of 8-8.5% p.a.*
  2. Diversification: By investing in a pooled fund, you benefit from diversification, spreading your risk across various mortgage assets.
  3. Investor-Friendly: It’s designed for ease of use with the ability to manage your account online. Plus, you can choose between the 6 or 12-month pooled fund to suit your financial strategy.
  4. Transparency: With our detailed Fact Sheet, you’ll have a clear picture of the fund’s performance, strategy and target returns.

*Be sure to read the IM and consider all risks while investing. Target returns and repayment of capital are not guaranteed.

Funding’s Borrowers

Funding’ borrowers are creditworthy property owners, investors, builders and developers who require a lender that is fast and flexible. Each loan is backed by a registered 1st mortgage over real estate.

  • Property owners use Funding for bridging finance when they are looking to secure a new property before they have sold their current property.
  • Property investors use Funding to renovate and sell, or secure an investment property quickly without the hassle of going to the banks.
  • Builders and developers use Funding to build a house or small townhouse project and sell, or to secure a property to eventually develop.
