Security  - The security of an investment is one of the highest concerns of any investor. With First Mortgage Trust, your funds are secured by first mortgages with relatively conservative Loan to Valuation ratios. Funds are only lent on first mortgages over land and buildings and in the event of a borrower defaulting on loan repayments, First Mortgage Trust can exercise the right to sell the property. In addition, First Mortgage Trust has relatively conservative Loan to Valuation ratios, the investment fund is pooled and the security properties supporting loan advances are diverse which all ensure any risk to investors is minimised.

Flexibility  - Investors have the choice to either invest a lump sum or make investments of various amounts at any time that suits them. Investor's money is not invested for any fixed term, although First Mortgage Trust does encourage investors to allow their investment to grow over a medium to long term. The Trust Deeds and Product Disclosure Statements allow First Mortgage Trust up to 90 business days to repay withdrawal requests and this provision may be utilised if it is considered to be in the interests of all investors in the fund.

No 'up front' fees  - No entry fees are required, regardless of whether you deposit lump sums or smaller regular savings contributions. All management fees, trustee fees and other costs are deducted prior to declaring the rate of the quarterly return.

Specialised and independent management  - First Mortgage Trust's relatively conservative first mortgage investments are professionally managed by a team with both legal skills and substantial, specialised experience in the field of mortgage lending.

Marginal tax rates and PIE tax  - First Mortgage Trust (as a group investment fund) deducts withholding tax from Income at the investor's marginal tax rate. For a large proportion of investors, this is 17.5%. There is also an option to invest under the PIE regime which caps tax paid on investments by individuals at 28%. This allows investors in the 33% tax band to save tax of 5 cents in each dollar of income from their investment compared with a direct investment in First Mortgage Trust.
