PAUL DUNCAN

Product Development

Over the years Paul has enjoyed management responsibilities in small and medium size enterprises and managed several of his own businesses, firstly in electrical engineering and then corporate advisory to financial services in Australia. Paul has always thrived on a challenge and creating from a “blank page”. The mission critical skills and determination he has developed when mountaineering as a young adult encouraged him to explore, innovate and ‘never give up’ to achieve a goal.

How We Operate

Diversification

Each portfolio is diversified across residential, commercial and light industrial land or projects, with the potential to make a diversified return on equity and meet the objective performance returns. Diversification of the portfolio also reduces concentration risk to any individual land or project, property market sectors or cycles.

Risk Management

The Portfolio management has a focus on measuring and reducing risk at two levels, namely the Portfolio blending methodology used to diversify land and projects, and potential risk from specific assets. Actively managing risk mitigates the factors that could erode returns, such as diversification and security.

Defensive Asset Class

The low volatility of the 'bricks and mortar' Australian property asset class, is a significant comfort factor for investors due to the historical probability that the property value will rise, and if it were to fall it would likely be for a relatively short time, and not below the construction costs.

Liquidity Events

The portfolios will seek to invest in land and projects requiring smaller equity investments but with potentially higher returns on equity, and also larger land and projects with both longer and shorter timeframes. With diversification across sectors, each portfolio intends to offer frequent withdrawal periods as liquidity events allow.
