Dear Investors,

Confident end to the year …

  • Current financial conditions surged 6.4%, while ‘future financial conditions’ grew 0.5%.
  • Sentiment in the property sector rose strongly this quarter, and is essentially back to pre-pandemic levels.
  • Confidence in both residential and commercial property rose, with confidence in the residential sector now at its highest level since 2015.

New Payton Pooled Fund offering in 2021

It’s with great pleasure that I announce the launch of a new investment fund in early 2021, the Payton Pooled Investment Fund.  Our team has been working hard throughout this year to design a new fund that’s intended for investors who would prefer a more managed investment experience, with exposure to a carefully constructed portfolio of loans selected by Payton.Offering three new products, the Cash-Plus, Core and Opportunity Accounts will replace the current 48-Hour, 6-Month, and 12-Month offerings.

Whilst similar in many respects, the new products will have some distinct structural changes designed to further support the scalability of these investment products, so that we can continue to deliver premium, risk-adjusted returns across a variety of real estate debt investments.All investors will receive a copy of the new information memorandum in the new year, along with further information regarding what this means for you.

Your Relationship Manager will also reach out to you in January to discuss the new fund and the options available to you.  For those investors that hold investments in the current 48-Hour, 6-Month and 12-Month Accounts,you will be invited to subscribe for units in the new fund, effectively converting your units in the Payton Select Investment Fund, to units in the Payton Pooled Investment Fund.In anticipation of the launch of the new pooled fund, Payton will be closing the current 6-Month and 12-Month accounts to any new investments from the 31st of January.

Importantly, for those investors that are invested in these products as of the 31st of January, Payton intends to honour the current income return and remaining term of the investment, until the investment matures (unless you elect to convert your investment into the new fund earlier). The Payton Select Investment Fund will continue to operate as a contributory mortgage fund only.

That is, investors who prefer to take a more active approach to their investments, and design their own portfolio, will still have the opportunity to do so.The Payton Pooled Investment Fund represents the culmination of a year’s worth of hard work, including improving the administrative infrastructure that supports our funds.  Along with the new fund you’ll see new reporting functionality, a new website, and eventually an online client portal.

It also represents the continued growth and evolution of the Payton business, which is made possible by loyal clients such as you.

Christmas is about Giving

At Payton we celebrate the ultimate gift of love at Christmas, as we give love and goodwill to family and friends and continue to be thankful for being in a position to give. For many however, Christmas is not an easy time whilst they navigate challenging family dynamics, financial distress, health conditions and memories of lost loved ones.

My challenge to all of us is to be alert to those around us that are struggling and to reach out in the ‘Spirit of Christmas’ this year, in a meaningful way.

If you need help to find worthy recipients,we are happy for you to join with us (thank you for all those who have already given) www.payton/

Our offices will close on Wednesday 23rd December and reopen on Monday 11th January, 2021.

For any urgent queries or requests, you can message your Relationship Manager or contact Craig Schloeffel on 0417 391 454.

Happy holidays,

David J Payton
