Balmain Private is enabling investors to consider stand-alone investments in individual first mortgage loans, via a unique online platform.
Via Balmain Discrete Mortgage Income Trusts, investors are able to build a commercial loan portfolio by investing in individual loans of their own choice.
All loans are backed by Balmain, Australia’s largest non-bank commercial loan manager.
The entire process is conducted online, meaning you select and manage your loan via a private Investor Control Console (ICC) which provides 24/7 transaction and reporting functionality.
Investors can move money from Cash Units to their bank account and vice versa, top-up and redeem Cash Units, invest in Loan Units and track the progress of your investments easily and securely, all via the paperless system.
The first step for those wanting to invest with Balmain Private is to complete the online application form.
Once complete, investors will invest a minimum of $50,000 in Cash Units, in turn held in a CMA with an AA rated Australian bank, currently the National Australia Bank (NAB).
Following this, investors will have the ability to have a detailed look at the underlying individual first mortgage investment Sub Trusts (Loan Units), allowing them to select one, or more, that best meets their return, term and risk requirements.
Once a selection has been made, investors simply click a button enter how much
they wish to invest and the ICC moves money from your Cash Units to the Loan Units you selected - no paperwork is required.
With the emergence of the growing “fintech” space, Balmain Private allows investors to build and control their own income-producing first mortgage loan portfolio – accessible from anywhere and all online.
Segmenting the population by generation is part of popular culture. The generation that came of age in the 1970s is very different to that of the 1980s or 2000s, having grown up with different technology, political and social events.
When the market gets difficult as it is currently it makes you step back and re-assess. Whilst you can do all of the objective commercial assessment in the world, key drivers are ultimately emotional and psychological. Fundamentally it is your "why" that governs your "how". The strength of these emotional and psychological drivers is what gives you the ware withal and grit to know when to hold, fold, walk away or run.
A few years ago I watched an ESPN documentary on NBA and NFL players and this phenomenon how when their careers are up after their moment in the sun, most, 60% and 78% respectively, end up financially destitute. When you think about the fact that most of these professional athletes earn more in just a year of their career than what most of us will earn via our working jobs in a lifetime, yet end up with nothing, it is really a really interesting phenomenon. On the other hand, there is the story of the UPS worker who never earned more than $14,000 a year and invested consistently, amassing a fortune of $70 million over his lifetime, $36m of which he donated to education-based charities to support young people getting a quality education.
