*Shares and units are collectively referred to as securities throughout this website
**Product disclosure statements and prospectuses are both referred to as offer documents throughout this website.

What is an offer document?

A prospectus or product disclosure statement is an offer document** which details the development, the benefits and risks of the offer of securities in the syndicate.

A product disclosure statement is a document similar to a prospectus which is issued for a Peet Syndicate that is established in a Trust structure (managed investment scheme) as opposed to a Company structure.

Under the Corporations Act, this document is required to be lodged with the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC). The offer document may also contain independent expert reports, about the development, from economists, accountants, planners, engineers and valuers commissioned as part of the rigorous due diligence.

Where are Peet's syndicate landholdings located?

Peet currently has land holdings in four States – most in Western Australia, Victoria and Queensland, with one community in Flinders, New South Wales.

How long do developments take?

The life of a development project varies from syndicate to syndicate depending on the size of the land holding, the process for gaining approvals to develop, the market and a range of other factors. These factors are fully detailed in the offer document for each syndicate.

How often are offers available in a Peet syndicate?

Peet will offer a syndicate opportunity when the right land holding is available and market conditions are favourable.

What sort of returns can I expect?

Returns vary according to a number of factors including the performance of the property market at the time of development. Wherever possible, Peet provides a forecast of future returns in the offer document – however, this is not always possible in some longer-term projects where the development start date is not certain. If a forecast cannot be provided, prospective investors will be able to refer to the benefits and risks associated with the project detailed in the offer document.

Are there any risks?

Peet land syndicates have a strong history of solid returns to investors and the management and Board of Peet have many years' experience in the property industry. However, there are risks associated with any land development, and each offer document details anticipated risk factors for that project.  Please read the offer document carefully. Before deciding to invest, we encourage you to consult your financial advisor to assess whether an investment in a Peet Syndicate is appropriate for you.

What is the minimum amount I can invest?

$5,000 is the minimum. This will get you 5,000, $1.00 securities.

Do I have to pay stamp duty or GST on my investment?

No.  For example, $5,000 is all that would be required to buy a minimum of 5,000, $1.00 securities in a syndicate.

Can I invest in a Peet syndicate for my personal super fund?

There are many privately managed super funds that invest in Peet Syndicates. However, before deciding to invest, we encourage you to consult your financial advisor to assess whether an investment in a Peet syndicate is appropriate for you.

How long is a syndicate open to investors?

The closing date for each syndicate offer is included in the offer document. However, it is worth noting that some syndicate offers have closed early because of the volume of subscriptions received.

What does the term 'interest on subscription monies' mean as it appears in the offer document?

In the time between receiving your subscription funds and allotting you securities in the syndicate, we will pay interest on your funds.  Following allotment of securities, the next payment to securityholders will be in the form of a capital return or dividend.

Will my subscription be scaled, and what does that mean?

Several Peet syndicates have been extremely popular and we have received applications for more securities than are available. This can mean applications are 'scaled' and securityholders are not allotted as many securities as they would have liked.  If your application is scaled, the excess application funds will be returned to you.

What if I want to sell my securities?

Each Peet syndicate is wound up at the completion of the project. However, if you would like to sell your securities in a syndicate before the end of a project, Peet will put you in contact with potential buyers and you may then negotiate directly with them to dispose of your securities.

Because of the way in which our securityholders realise their returns, our syndicates suit those securityholders who have a medium to long-term horizon as the investment should be considered illiquid.
