Opus has a hedging policy in place to ensure interest rates

their targeted distributions.
Active management is an important part of the Opus
Investment Philosophy. Opus continues to achieve targeted
distributions across its portfolio. Some of the factors
contributing to this track record include:

complimentary assets benefiting from well considered
diversification, achieved through various geographic

The Credentials of Opus Capital
Opus Capital has a proven history of identifying and
acquiring premium property investments featuring secure
income streams which deliver regular tax advantaged returns.
The Opus Capital name is synonymous with property
investments that deliver higher investment returns generated
by capital growth.
Therefore, part of the property feasibility study for each
acquisition includes detailed consideration of the exit
strategy and hence, how potential for capital profit may be
realised at a future date.
Through the sale of a series of assets from among its 14
investment funds, Opus Capital has delivered to its
investors capital profits ranging from 30% to 71%.* These
outcomes demonstrate Opus Capital’s relentless focus on
total return to investors.
Building the Fund
Opus Capital evaluates numerous Australian property
investment opportunities each year. Many of these
opportunities are quality commercial properties falling into
the range of $10 million to $50 million. Typically these
properties are multi-tenanted, require active management and
therefore generally have a greater potential to add value
and hence, capital growth. These properties fall outside the
reach of most private investors.
