Ebisu fund

Posted on 1st February 2017 by Trevor Reynolds in Blog |Finance in Focus

A fund run by ourselves at the Banner Group, The Banner Asset Management Ebisu Income fund domiciled in the Isle of Man.  We have worked hard over the last 8+ years to achieve this.

Banner Ebisu Income Fund

BAM started the Ebisu Fund in 2010, initially as a bridge lending fund; over time this has developed into an alternative income fund. The fund has earned an average return to investors of 13.50% p.a. since inception.

BAM is not a hedge fund and is not investing in speculative property appreciation – we are lending our funds to property developers.  The loans are structured to cover the build costs and we manage this process from the first $ to the last.  All the developments are usually 75% (or higher) pre-sold with 10% deposits normally taken on the units sold.  Loans are usually for a term of 18 to 24 months. Once the building is complete, settlements are made, the loans are repaid. The Banner Ebisu fund is usually invested in 12-15 projects at any one time.

All the loans are 100% asset-backed with full recourse personal guarantees so they are fully dischargeable in the event of default.

Banner Wholesale Fixed Interest Income Fund

The BAM Wholesale Fund began in 2011. Each investor chooses his or her investment.  BAM has managed over AU$ 3 billion in loans since inception.

Our initial two offerings have investment minimums beginning from AUS$500,000 and AU$ 5 million respectively.

The Banner Asset Management Ebisu Income Fund, domiciled in the Isle of Man, us now be available for investments starting from AUS$25,000, putting money to work in the same tried and tested investment process.  We anticipate returns in the 8-12% range in this investment class. We believe these returns will continue for the next few years at least. With –from our point of view — a high degree of confidence in the integrity and security of the fund process.
