Aggregated Income earned on $10,000

The chart below shows the aggregated income earned if $10,000 was invested in the prior fund managed by the Manager over the past 4 1/2 years period to September 2020. The pre-tax earnings of $2,894, equates to an average annualized return of 6.43% per annum. Past performance is not a guarantee of future returns. However, we are committed to maintaining this successful track record and have fixed the interest rates on the loans accordingly .

How do I get my money back?

The Income Generator is a continuous offer with no maturity date.  We understand that many of our investors have been investing in the retirement sector for a long period of time and are at a stage of life when they need to have a degree of flexibility to cater for future events. 

The Income Generator intends to meet our investors need for flexibility by offering a means of exit for investors who have a change of circumstance and need to cash in some or all of their investment. A funded buy-back arrangement with the Manager has been put in place whereby the Manager can offer to buy back Shares from Shareholders wishing to cash out. This arrangement has the objective of providing an easy efficient withdrawal mechanism for investors who provide the requisite notice. 

This not a guaranteed buyback for all shares on offer but is intended to be an orderly efficient mechanism for those investors who have a change of circumstance. We are seeking investors who want a steady income and stable capital value throughout a medium-term investment. To encourage investment for the medium term, fees will be charged on Shares bought back in the first two years of investment.  Further information can be found in the Product Disclosure Statement.

Strong growth in the retirement village industry

The factors that in our view make lending to the retirement village and aged care sector attractive for the Fund:

  • Grey Tsunami - baby boom at the end of the Second World War. In 2016, the first of these post-war baby boomers turn 70.

  • Growing popularity of retirement village living.

  • Retirement Village living is an attractive way for seniors to cash up the Family Home. 

  • The industry is orderly, well regulated and provides a quality lifestyle for retirees.

  • Senior New Zealander's are becoming more aware of the need for security, care facilities and opportunities for socialization.


Almost 18,000 new retirement village units needed in less than 10 years for an ageing population.
