Since 2001, APIL has established 29 commercial property syndicates, with a combined value of over $1 billion, past and present.
APIL is a commercial property funds management syndicate based in Perth, Western Australia. Today, we continue to manage portfolios for retail and wholesale investors seeking strong yields and potential for capital growth.
Our property funds are for anyone looking to invest – from experienced investors to those investing for the first time. We take care of our investors, by guiding them through the process, so they have the information and knowledge to feel confident in their decisions.
Of course, the point of investing is to achieve capital growth. We have a proven track record of success, which is why many of our investors have been with us since the very beginning, and continue to reinvest with us today. We manage at least 1,000 investors – including individuals, companies, SMSFs and trusts – and over 300 commercial tenancies across Australia.
We are proud of the strong relationships we have built, and continue to build, with our investors.
Property funds management for first time investors
When we opened our doors almost two decades ago, we made the decision to accept a lower entry cost than many other property syndicates. This is why our syndicates require a minimum $50,000 buy in, which means investors are able to spread their risk, by investing in multiple syndicates across different locations and sectors.
As a result, new investors have the opportunity to invest in assets beyond what they could ordinarily achieve alone. Over time, we have seen many first-time investors grow their asset base successfully, thanks to taking their first step with us many years ago. Seeing investors achieve success like this is one of the reasons we do what we do.
How an unlisted property fund or syndicate works
An unlisted property fund (also known as a property syndicate) allows people to buy a unit or share in a group of properties. Investors then receive a regular income from the properties, which usually comes from rents paid by the tenants who lease them.
When the assets are sold, the syndicate is terminated, and investors split the profits based on the percentage they contributed (minus any relevant fees or costs). If the value of the assets go up over the term of the investments, the value of the investor’s units will go up too. This means more funds will be divided between investors when the assets are sold.
A syndicate is typically managed by a professional property funds management team. That means once you buy into the syndicate, you don’t have to worry about day to day operations or management. As a result, you have peace of mind knowing your assets are being taken care of professionally.
Acquiring quality commercial assets to purchase is key to our success. We target properties with strong capital growth potential – such as office buildings, large format retail centres, shopping centres and industrial properties with high volumes of traffic. These commercial property assets may be located anywhere in Australia, so long as they align with our strict investment criteria.
That’s how we approach everything we do. Our property funds management team delivers strategic advice, backed by decades of real investment experience. And, we ensure investors have a direct line to our directors and managers, so they can ask questions and discuss strategy with key decision makers.
Partnering with a trusted investment syndicate has other benefits too. You’re able to invest your funds, and allow professionals to handle the day to day operations of the syndicate. This kind of high-level support is why we are considered one of WA’s leading unlisted property funds. And it’s why many of our investors choose to reinvest with us time and time again.
