Course Overview

A property fund is a fund that invests capital directly in real estate property and property portfolios. A typical property fund has a predetermined life span that usually varies between 5-7 years after which the fund's properties are sold and the capital is distributed back to the fund investors.

This course is highly practical and will involve a number of examples and workshop activities.

  • Review of structures, LLC, unit trusts, limited partnerships, master feeder, multi class
  • Understanding of taxation, transfer pricing, baker trusts and NRL
  • Overview of the property fund cycle, including debt management

Course Benefits

Property fund courses have often formed part of a more general funds based program. This course provides a focus on a unique industry.

This course is suitable for administrators, including less experienced management, who wish to focus on this area of administration and will:

  • Demystify property fund structures
  • Understanding the current tax planning structures within the property fund sector
  • Review the property fund lifecycle and funding cycle

Structuring within the industry can be reasonably complex, this course aims to spend time understanding why structures exist in the manner they do. The course also focuses on the tax implications faced by many funds, and the pitfalls for administrators working in the property fund sector.
