The Australian Securities Property Fund (ASPF) is a unique unlisted property fund, where investors have an opportunity to invest directly in Australian real estate, covering commercial, retail, industrial and residential properties with a minimum $50,000 commitment. Investing in the Australian Securities Property Fund does not mean you invest in a unit trust (a pooled fund). You invest in one property with a controlling proprietary over the property. Therefore all investment properties operate independently of one another, as sub-schemes of the Fund, providing investors greater transparency and security of investment, unlike a pooled fund where poor performing investments can impact other investors contributions. The fund provides investors regular monthly returns in the form of leasing income based on the amount of their investment and further potential for capital growth at the end of the investment period when the property is sold. For more details on Property Fund performance visit the Fund Performance section below.
Net rental distributions are paid monthly in arrears. Investors also benefit from potential capital growth at the end of the investment period. For information on Income and Capital growth visit the Performance section below.
Properties are held for the medium to long term (five to seven year period) before selling to realise maximum capital growth. Australian Securities manage the Funds assets throughout the investment term.
Funds are allocated specifically to an individual. All Properties within the fund operate independently of each other, ensuring investors greater transparency and security of investment.
After 95 years in property securities, Australian Securities is proficient in the sourcing, evaluation and acquisition of quality properties for investment. Property locations are predominantly within a 50km radius of Melbourne CBD
In March 2012 ASIC (Regulatory Guide RG46) issued 6 benchmarks for unlisted property schemes for retail investors to better understand and assess the risks, rewards and suitability of this form of investment. Property investment benchmarks are available here and should be read in conjunction with the Product Disclosure Statement. Australian Securities Limited provide detailed information on available properties before investment. Detailed benchmark comparisons are provided for investors, in the form of a Property Description Certificate (PDC) allowing investors to make an informed choice.
Investment minimum is $50,000 (or $35,000 for financial advisor clients). Investors are not charged establishment fees to join the fund or a termination fee to close their account.

No withdrawals or redemptions are allowed during the investment term. Ongoing management fees starting from 0.95% are chargeable for ongoing management of your asset. No performance fees are applied at the end of the investment term.
