strategy of the Trust is to utilise Australia's
residential property markets by providing
Unitholders access to these markets. The Responsible
Entity seeks to reduce the Trust's exposure to risk,
whilst maximising its capital appreciation, by
building a diverse portfolio of established
residential properties across a range of geographic
and economic categories. To this end the Trust is
growth-focused, aiming for long-term gains rather
than short-term income yields. The Trust will not
hold any property in Western Australia or Queensland
until the Trust satisfies certain requirements of
the stamp duty legislation in those states. These
requirements are set out in more detail in Section 8
of the PDS
The Trust seeks to
have approximately 90% of its assets invested in
established residential property which are selected
for capital growth potential. The remaining funds of
the Trust will be held in cash, bank bills and money
market instruments. During the first 8-12 months,
the Trust may be fully invested in cash, bank bills
and money market instruments.
Long term – at least
five to ten years.

While the Trust is
liquid, Redemption Requests will be processed within
90 Business Days from the end of the month in which
the Responsible Entity receives a completed
Redemption Request. While the Trust may be liquid
for the purposes of the Corporations Act by virtue
of the relatively long Redemption Period of 90
Business Days, an investment in the Trust should be
considered an illiquid investment which will be held
for the long term. Under the Constitution, the
Responsible Entity may suspend redemptions in
$1,000. If a
Unitholder holds less than 5,000 Units after
processing a Redemption Request, the Responsible
Entity may redeem all the Unitholder's remaining

There are risks
associated with investing in the Trust. Some of
these are described in the PDS.
Under current tax law,
any income and capital gains distributed to you by
the Trust are assessable to you and taxable in the
year to which they relate. The Responsible Entity
recommends that you obtain independent tax advice
relevant to your personal circumstances as to the
taxation consequences of an investment in the Trust.
The Responsible Entity
does not expect there to be significant income to
distribute since the aim of the Trust is to provide
capital growth. Unless a Unitholder instructs
otherwise, any distributions will be reinvested in
the Trust. If a Unitholder does not wish to have
their distributions reinvested, then the
distributions will be paid by electronic funds
transfer to an Australian Financial Institution's
account nominated by the Unitholder. If a Unitholder
receives its distribution in the form of Units, the
Unitholder may have to pay taxes on the distribution
from its own sources.
No contribution fees (or commissions on these fees)
apply to Units issued as a result of a reinvestment
of a distribution. The Responsible Entity may, in
its discretion, elect to distribute cash and not
Any income not reinvested in the Trust will usually
