Jump to the next section

The Clearmatch team is delighted to announce its dedicated Insurance Premium Funding Trust received a Favourable Investment Grade rating by SQM Research on 26 February 2019.

Designed to be a viable alternative to investing in term deposits and Cash/Enhanced Cash Funds, the Fund is an open-ended, unregistered Managed Investment Scheme, available only to Australian wholesale clients. The Fund aims to deliver a regular income stream and yield (currently 4+% p.a. after fees and losses) with low capital risk/volatility.

The SQM report highlighted the following strengths of Clearmatch and the Fund: 

  • A sophisticated software platform that enables fractionalisation of investment risk and the customisation of a return profile for individual investors, according to the investor’s investment guidelines and asset allocation preferences.
  • Investors receive income as it is earned on the loan repayments, with real time reporting of the performance of the loan book to which the investor is exposed.
  • Management fees are only charged on successful receipt of principal and interest on each loan note, not on invested FUM.
  • A well experienced head office and marketing management team that have cross functional expertise in business management, lending, technology and investment businesses.
