The Manager is Resimac Limited AFSL 247283, ACN 002 997 935, a wholly owned subsidiary of the ASX listed Resimac Group Limited ACN 095 034 003 (Resimac Group), a leading non-bank financial institution with an extensive history in originating, servicing, and securitising mortgage assets.
Resimac Group is a pioneer of residential mortgage-backed securities in Australia and since 1987 has issued to institutional investors more than $40 billion in structured debt securities in domestic and global capital markets similar in nature to the ones the Fund will invest in. All the securities Resimac Group has issued to date have met their principal and interest payments when due.
Resimac Group currently has over 50,000 customers in Australia and New Zealand through its broad suite of competitive, award-winning residential mortgage and asset finance products that cater to diverse customer types and needs. Currently Resimac Group has a loan book of $16 billion and new business originations of more than $5 billion per annum.
Objectives and benchmark
- Access to a specialist high conviction fund. The Manager will use their extensive knowledge of structured debt securities to structure and manage the Fund’s investments to maximise returns while managing risks;
- Access to a reliable pipeline of assets from Resimac Group which is a well-resourced issuer with a proven long term track record in originating and servicing Australian mortgage collateral;
- Provides investors with the opportunity to broaden their fixed income exposure across a diversified portfolio of structured debt securities generally only available to institutional investors; and
- Aims to consistently make quarterly income payments to investors.
Notwithstanding the primary focus, the Fund may also invest in other fixed interest securities such as asset backed securities (ABS) and corporate floating rate notes (FRNs).
The Fund can also hold short-term money market investments, including (but not limited to) cash in a bank account, cash in an 11am call account, bank bills, negotiable certificates of deposit and term deposits.
Initially the Fund’s investments will be securities originated by a member of the Resimac Group. Despite these securities being sourced from a related party of the Manager, investment decisions will be subject to the same analytical rigour as would be applied to those from an external issuer.
Analysis will be undertaken to determine:
- whether the proposed investment is a suitable opportunity for the Fund;
- at the proposed acquisition price, will the investment provide appropriate returns; and
- if an investment is made, will the Fund still be within risk tolerances.
Investment by the Fund into any securities issued by Resimac Group or a member of Resimac Group will be made at an arm’s length basis.
The securities which are originated by a member of the Resimac Group and acquired by the Fund provide inbuilt diversification as each security is collateralised by individual loans. The loans used for collateral are first registered mortgages secured by real property under Australian law. The underlying pool of loans is diversified across many different borrowers, geographies and property types. However, all the loans in a portfolio relate to a single sector (e.g., all loans in a RMBS transaction are backed by residential mortgages) and will therefore be subject to the risks associated with that sector.
As the Fund gains scale, the potential investment universe may expand to include securities from other issuers.
To maintain consistent income returns over the long term, the Manager intends to hold securities, where prudent, until maturity. The Fund will have the capacity to trade securities if it is assessed to be in the best interests of unitholders.
