Where can you get a secure investment that is going to pay you 6-10% safely?

Finding yield is tough right now, with 10-year bond rates and worldwide national Reserve Banks’ benchmark interest rates all at record lows.

At Banner Asset Management we make money every month through a simple and robust system that we are happy to explain and share.

Since Inception we have earned 37.10% to Dec 2020 an average of 9.27% p.a.

The fund is set up with safety of invested capital as first priority. It lends money to medium sized builders with loans ranging from $10 million to $50 million. The builders need loans in order to complete their building projects. The fund does not invest in property: the fund lends money against specified collateral at LTVs usually below 75%. Australian law is clear on defaults: the fund takes the collateral and sells it. The loans are made for between 12 and 24 months, and as there are typically 20 to 25 loans in play at any one time. Repayments come back into the fund on a regular basis thus forestalling liquidity issues, which are the Achilles heel of most property funds. Ebisu is not a property fund; it is a loan fund pure and simple.

In addition, Banner Asset Management can also provide a tax efficient wrapper which shields Capital gains Taxes. With the OECD’s Common Reporting Standard (CRS) in place, more and more of their financial data gets automatically exchanged, so it is good for the Aussie, European, U.K. and the authorities here in Japan (which joined the CRS in September 2018). If funds are held in an insurance wrapper, they can be easily reported but aren’t taxable unless you take a profit out (this means all capital gains are shielded from taxes). At the point where one decides to take things out one can plan to take advantage using the best tax friendly jurisdiction possible to mitigate as much tax as possible.
