Investor profile

Investment policy

Predominantly invests in income producing investments. The Income Trust can invest in securities issued by government authorities, corporations and financing vehicles, and can include the following:

  • cash and fixed interest securities
  • hybrid securities (securities that have characteristics of both debt and equity)
  • mortgages up to 66.6% (⅔) of valuation secured over commercial, industrial and residential real estate in Australia
  • mortgage backed securities that provide regular interest payments, similar to that of fixed interest securities, and are backed by a pool of mortgages by way of securitisation.

Catholic Values Investment policy

Investments must qualify on investment fundamentals and are then screened for compliance with our Catholic Values Investment policy. Global equities and property assets are invested via existing wholesale unlisted Trusts. Therefore, the application of the policy within these asset classes is on a 'best fit' basis and some restricted activities may be permitted.
