Unlisted property trusts are known for providing high yields in a safe investment environment. Unlisted property funds, also known as property syndicates, commercial property unit trusts, and direct property funds, give many Australian investors an alternative to share investing and residential property investment, and can be a great addition to any portfolio. A unit trust is one of the safest and most tax effective types of property investment trust structures out there.
It can be expensive and complicated to invest in commercial real estate alone. But investing alongside an unlisted property trust which is compliant under an Australian Financial Services Licence (AFSL) gives investors a secure and simple way to own commercial property.
