Loans have low-cost set-up fees and competitive lending rates, making them a great option for growing wealth.

Flexible interest options

We offer competitive interest terms, including the choice of fixed or variable interest for terms up to 5 years.

The basics

Property investments subject to a mortgage can be included as an asset to a fund. Earnings on the fund are taxed at 15% compared to the minimum marginal rate of 30%, and Capital gains will be taxed at 10% or 15 %, not the minimum marginal rate of 30%. Australian Securities does not know your financial circumstances, we recommend you consult with your finance/tax agent.

Features and benefits

Not restrictive

There is no limitation on the appointment of trustees of the fund holding the asset.

Flexible repayment terms

Borrowers have the right to repay after 12 months.

Securitised Lending

Australian Securities offer lending solutions on several security types. If you have the right security, we can make any loan work for you.


The property must only be used for retirement funding (sole purpose test). The property must be held in a trust, and the super fund must be the sole beneficiary. The trustee does not need to be a professional trustee company or lender-controlled trust. The lender has no recourse against other assets of the super fund. There is a 60% maximum Loan to Valuation ratio (lower than the market value or the capitalised rental value of the property). A Financial Planner Certificate and/or Cash flow statement from the Trust is required to demonstrate positive or neutral gearing of the loan without relying on the super fund. Personal guarantees from the individuals who are the Fund Members may be required.
