Update for investors – 10 September, 2020

Our proactive approach to risk management of our property loan portfolio, investments and liquidity, and continued interest and investment in our flagship products continues to be at the forefront of our mind for our investors and borrowers.

Over the last few weeks, we have received questions from investors around the impact of ongoing restrictions in Victoria on the loans in the Trilogy Monthly Income Trust portfolio.

I am pleased to report that all projects relating to loans in Victoria continue (although more slowly) to progress with current minimal impact.

Our Portfolio Managers work closely with all our borrowers throughout the loan term to help identify and minimise any potential issues. By creating a close working relationship and using our contacts and information from across the sector, we help our borrowers work through any unexpected impacts on their projects.

Across the cash-style investments within the portfolios of the Trilogy Monthly Income Trust and Trilogy Enhanced Income Fund there has been a continued compression in credit spreads.

Solid inflows have continued in August across the Trilogy Monthly Income Trust and the Trilogy Enhanced Income Fund.

Although Victoria’s roadmap out of restrictions is slower than some expected, expert market commentators, including Westpac’s Chief Economist Bill Evans, are predicting economic growth in the September and December quarters this year. Market sentiment around the impacts of government restrictions and support programs on the property sector is mixed, with most commentators predicting a multi-speed recovery for the different states. As is always the case, having a diverse portfolio remains important.

Trilogy Industrial Property Trust to open soon for investment

One sector that has seen increased demand this year has been the industrial property sector. Activity in sourcing and acquiring suitable assets for this sector has increased significantly. We are in the process of acquiring a high-quality industrial asset in Darra, Queensland. Subject to the successful completion of due diligence and settlement in October 2020, the new property will be acquired for the Trilogy Industrial Property Trust. The acquisition will expand its portfolio to seven properties, and create further diversification in terms of income, tenant type and geographical location.

We are aiming to open the Trilogy Industrial Property Trust later this month with the issue of a new Product Disclosure Statement (PDS). Given the interest we have received already, we expect the Trust to only be open for investment for a short time.

If you have any questions, please contact our Investor Relations team on 1800 230 099 or email investorrelations@trilogyfunds.com.au.

Yours Sincerely,

Philip Ryan
