PMG's New Fund – PMG Generation Fund

Today, 27-year old property funds manager PMG Property Funds Management Ltd (PMG) launched a new commercial property fund called PMG Generation Fund, specifically designed to make commercial property investment possible for more generations of New Zealanders.

PMG Generation Fund is a robust, commercial property fund which makes investing easier through its 24-hour fully-digitised application and investment tracking portal; providing a lower minimum investment amount and, in the future, the Fund intends to allow investors to invest small amounts often into the fund and reinvest their monthly cash distributions.

CEO Scott McKenzie says he is thrilled to launch PMG Generation Fund which breaks downs barriers to commercial property investment and is line with PMG’s purpose to help New Zealanders achieve financial freedom.

“PMG Generation Fund not only provides better access to commercial property investment it also provides investors with the same benefits PMG’s other four unlisted investment funds have including regular cash income, the spread of investor risk through the diversification of properties and locations in one fund, and being managed by an experienced property funds manager,” says McKenzie.

“Historically, commercial property investment has been difficult to access by many New Zealandersdue to a lack of confidence and understanding of commercial property, difficult application and investment processes and high minimum investment levels.

“PMG Generation Fundmakescommercial property investment more attractive and easier to understand for more generations of New Zealanders.

Open to all New Zealanders from Thursday 27 February 2020PMG is offering investors the chance to purchase up to 33 million units at $1.00per unit in PMG Generation Fund with a minimum investment of 1,000 units.

Together with bank debt, the funds raised during the offer period will be used by PMG Generation Fund to acquire three quality industrial properties in Hamilton, Wellington and Christchurch. The three properties are valued at $52.9million and are 100% occupied by recognised, national and multi-national tenants including Coca Cola Amatil, Euro Steel Corporation and Torpedo7 (owned by The Warehouse Group).

PMG Generation Fund will provide investors with a monthly cash income, which McKenzie says is forecasted to be an annualised gross cash distribution return of 5.80 cents per unit1(net of expenses and fees but before tax).

“Compared to other cash investments such as term deposits (currently returning between 2.50 and 3.00%2), bonds, and other unlisted commercial funds’offers currently in the market, in our view, 5.80 per cent represents a good return on investment,” says McKenzie.

“Initially, PMG is targeting to acquire sought-after industrial properties into PMG Generation Fund. In time (and subject to regulatory approval which we are currently seeking) the Fund plans to invest in indirect ownership of commercial property via unlisted property funds and listed property vehicles. This will spread investor risk across a wider pool of investment assets and generate sustainable returns now and in the longer term,” he says.
