Commenting, the CEO of DomaCom, Arthur Naoumidis, said: “This the final checkpoint in the approval process for DomaCom to introduce a range of new products underpinned by the ability to introduce gearing.  It opens up a significant pool of investors to us, by enabling them to incorporate debt when investing in property.”

“This will make property investment much more tax efficient for advisers and their clients, as well as reducing the amount of equity required to raise for each project.  Given how integral debt is to purchasing property, this creates a really compelling proposition for investors and enables them to achieve a tax efficient outcome when investing in property through DomaCom.” Melbourne Securities Corporation CEO, Matthew Fletcher, said:

“MSC is pleased to receive the endorsement from DomaCom Fund unitholders and is looking forward to working with DomaCom and its stakeholders.  Complementing our trustee services to the traditional fund market, we believe in supporting innovative products such as DomaCom Fund which utilises exciting new technology to provide new and alternative investment options.”
