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.

Commercial property isn’t a pure income asset class like cash or fixed interest but it has a few advantages over other forms of income-based investing, starting with the yield. Right now, the APN AREIT Fund, for example, offers a distribution yield of 6.08%, paid monthly.
