Investment Decision Committee    
ACIF has established an investment decision committee (Investment Committee) which will be supported by a team of independent consultants. Potential investment projects will be submitted to the Investment Committee after a detailed investigation, and project investments will be made when 80% of the members of the Investment Committee vote in favour of the investment.

The Funds Investment Orientation

Most of the investment opportunities for the funds are expected to arise directly or indirectly within the Australian real estate industry or within the infrastructure sector of the Australian economy. These industries are attractive at the present time because of low interest rates, a strong economy, high population growth, and favourable government policy treatment.


Fund Structure

All Funds are structured as unit trusts established under Australian Law pursuant to a trust deed.
