Risks

Risk Rating: Low to Medium risk classification4

All investments are subject to risk, which means the value of your investment may rise or fall. Before making an investment decision, it is important to understand the risks that can affect the value of your investment. 

Key risks of an investment in the Fund include but are not limited to:

Credit risk. Credit risk is the risk that one or more assets in the Portfolio may decline in price or fail to pay interest or principal when due because the borrower experiences a decline in its financial status.

Utilisation risk. The Portfolio may include investments in drawn and undrawn loans. Undrawn loans include revolving loans and facilities where the borrower can draw down and repay the facility over time, subject to an overall facility limit.

Liquidity risk. The objective of the Fund is to invest in loans secured by mortgages over Australian real property. The loans will have maturities of up to 24 months.

Capital return. A mortgage scheme is not a bank deposit and the return of some or all of an investment is not guaranteed.

More information on the risks of investing in the Fund is contained in the Product Disclosure Statement, which should be considered before deciding to invest in the Fund.
