With over hundreds of millions of dollars in retail funds on behalf of thousands of Australian investors, Balmain is one of Australia's largest mortgage fund managers.
Recent upheaval in the retail mortgage trust sector has upset the status quo and
has created a myriad of new opportunities. During this time Balmain has been acquiring
mortgage funds and leading the industry with the development of revised product
structures to reconcile the requirements of investors and borrowers.
Australia is now home to the 4th largest savings pool in the world and with an aging
population comes the growing need for reliable income streams secured by capital
stable assets. Balmain is well placed within the commercial mortgage industry to
play an ongoing role in the development of this important sector.
Balmain Fund Administration Limited (AFSL 333213) a wholly owned subsidiary of Balmain
NB Corporation Limited (Balmain), is currently the Responsible Entity of two mortgage
funds which are registered managed investment schemes. Balmain (MT) Pty Ltd, a wholly
owned subsidiary of Balmain Funds Management Pty Ltd which in turn is a wholly owned
subsidiary of Balmain, is the investment manager for these schemes. Balmain AQUA
Pty Ltd, a subsidiary of Balmain Funds Management Pty Limited, is currently the
investment manager of three mortgage funds which are registered managed investment
schemes and the responsible entity for these schemes is an independent entity.
Balmain continues to support mortgage funds and is keen to play a role in the continuing
consolidation of the industry.
