Commercial Property Syndicates in Perth

At Westbridge Funds Management, we are known to specialise in commercial property syndicates in Perth and throughout Australia. However, strictly speaking, these investments are funds, as opposed to syndicates.

What is the Difference Between a Commercial Property Syndicate, a Fund & a Trust?

‘Property syndicates,‘property funds’ and ‘property trusts are similar in that they involve pooling capital for investment purposes and then splitting the returns on an investment percentage basis.

However, there are some key differences between each of these entities which you need to be aware of.

Commercial property investment syndicates are usually an investment in a single asset, whereas funds are more diversified as they’re investments in multiple assets.

This isn’t to be confused with commercial real estate investment trusts (also known as REITs) which involves investing directly in income-producing real estate and are traded like stocks.

What are the Benefits of Property Syndication?

Bigger & Better Investment Opportunities

Syndicates, or funds, offer access to higher-yielding property. By pooling money, investors have the opportunity to invest in commercial, retail or industrial properties that may otherwise be too expensive for them to purchase.

Such arrangements allow smaller investors with limited funds to break into the market.

Lowers Your Risk Profile

Investing through a property syndicate, or fund, typically allows you to invest a smaller amount of capital, thereby lowering your risk profile.

Larger, higher-quality investments therefore become a more attainable goal.

Furthermore, reputable funds (or syndicates) are managed by professionals who can utilise their unique position in the property market to allow you access to some of the best investment properties, in the best locations – and at the right price.

Allows for Diversification

Investing in a property fund allows you to invest in multiple assets, thereby diversifying your investment portfolio.

This enables you to further lower your risk profile, as you are spreading your risk across multiple investments, as opposed to having all your eggs in one basket.

Access to Cheaper Financing Options

Property fund managers generally have greater ‘buying power,’ which gives them access to cheaper financing options with more favourable terms than individual investors would be exposed to.

Saves Time

The research and due diligence required to purchase a sound investment property is extremely time-consuming and requires a meticulous approach. And even then, it doesn’t guarantee your purchase will be a good investment; without the insights of a industry professional, you could end up with a lower performing investment.

Also, with an investment fund, all the management and administration is taken care of for you.

Relying on an expert team can save you a huge amount of time – and give you peace of mind that your investment is in safe hands.
