Established in 2010, Banner has consistently delivered superior returns to its investors.
Investments include property specific investments secured by a single asset and a number of pooled funds offering differing risk and return to match investor risk and return appetites. Banner adopts a consistent and rigorous approach to its appraisal of each potential investment, with a detailed due diligence and adoption of risk mitigation measures specific to each transaction.
We focus our investments in the major population centres of Australia’s East Coast, which have greater underlying market depth and liquidity.
Banner also offers experienced wholesale investors with higher yielding investments such as equity participations in development projects. All investments are actively managed by Banner throughout the investment term through to repayment of the investment.
Banner’s key principals have years of experience in funds management, property, development, finance, law and related disciplines.
Our team of experienced portfolio managers manage each investment from inception to repayment and actively utilise experts (legal, valuation and other consultants) to assist in our assessment and management of each investment.
Growing relationships with our investors and borrowers is the key foundation of our business. Banner is driven by long-term, trusted relationships built by providing certainty, speed and transparency to both sponsors and investors.
Banner has delivered superior returns to its investors without loss, since inception.
