The Cromwell Australian Property Fund offers access to Cromwell's listed and unlisted property expertise, all in one fund. The diverse portfolio provides exposure to high quality properties, with a focus on consistent monthly income1

The Fund has been constructed to provide a tax advantaged monthly distribution1 plus potential for capital growth2, by investing in a portfolio of listed an dunlisted property investments.

The Fund will initially hold units in the Cromwell Phoenix Property Securities Fund and the Cromwell Direct Property Fund3. The Fund is designed to provide investors with a diversified mix of listed and unlisted property investments for the property allocation in their portfolio.

Cromwell Phoenix Property Securities Fund (PSF)

PSF will provide the Fund with exposure to listed property securities that are predominantly Australian Real Estate Investment Trusts (A-REITs) listed on the ASX. Over time, the Fund may also invest in other property securities funds or hold listed property securities directly. For more information on PSF, please click here.

Cromwell Direct Property Fund (DPF)

DPF will provide the Fund's direct property exposure; DPF will initially invest in underlying property trusts managed by Cromwell Funds Management. For more information on DPF, please click here.

The Fund may also hold up to 30% of assets in cash when it is considered prudent by Cromwell Funds Management, including for Fund liquidity, pending new investments or where it considers available investment opportunities are relatively unattractive in value terms.
