How secure is my investment?
The fund primarily invests in a portfolio of loans secured by registered first mortgages, directly or indirectly by acquiring units in other mortgage investment funds.
We adopt a highly disciplined investment process which is managed by a team with more than 30 years experience.
How long do I need to invest for?
The minimum investment period is 12 months.
How are returns paid to you?
An investor may choose to receive either monthly or quarterly distributions of income in the following manner:
(a) distributions of income will be distributed monthly in arrears by electronic funds transfer (‘EFT’) into the financial institution account nominated in your application form, unless you make other arrangements with us; or
(b) investors can also choose to have their distribution automatically re-invested at the end of each quarter.
Can you make withdrawals?
You are able to withdraw your investment only at the end of the investment term and where the Fund is liquid. To do this you must provide us with a written notice at least 30 days before the end of your investment term. Circumstances may arise where an investor requires urgent access to their funds. SHSL is not obliged to allow an investor to access their funds early, but will consider such a withdrawal application. An investor who is permitted to withdraw before the end of their term is charged an early withdrawal fee of 1% of the funds withdrawn.
