Why Invest with AVARI

AVARI has been active in the private lending space since 2015 and has a track record of not having made a loss on a loan investment. Unlike most private lenders, AVARI are also property equity investors,managing over $1 bilion in assets on behalf of their investors and have completed a number of residential and commercial construction projects, refurbishment, leasing and sales.

AVARI's key strengths:

Access to deals

AVARI's knowledge and experience in lending and in acquiring and managing real estate assets in the Australian market gives them broad access to deals. For example,a lending deal can arise from an initial purchase discussion and vice versa. Given its track record and established relationships in the market, AVARI is an active player and often receives referrals from brokers, bankers and institutional investors.

In-house property team

Unlike most fund managers, AVARI has a full in-house property team which includes architects, analysts, project managers, interior designers and internal sales/leasing. This allows the AVARI team to look at lending deals differently- rather than simply assessing ratios and pre- sales. AVARI looks at the asset from an equity investor's perspective and determines the feasibility and the probability of the borrower achieving a positive outcome. In the event of a loan default, AVARI can easily step in to complete a project rather than trying to sell an asset during the construction or development phase. The team also allows AVARI to look at loan deals through a property investor's lens.

Capital Preservation

AVARI's property market knowledge allows fast and efficient due diligence. AVARI has a deep understanding of how to acquire and manage asset and complete a development. AVARI's experience in property development allows its team to analyse loan deals to identify potential isues that may arise during development to ensure a positive outcome.

Deal Size

AVARI is not limited by deal sizes. With reliable funding sources from institutional investors, AVARI can originate deals that are usually beyond the investment size offered by a standard private lender.

Flexible approach to deals

AVARI seeks to contribute to the borrower's success by sharing its in-house property expertise, including advice on asset management, development, leasing and sales. This also allows AVARI to access deals which may not be available to a standard private lender.

Alignment of Manager

AVARI and its staff will invest in the Fund in the same class of units as as investors to align interests.


AVARI prides itself on its communication. Investors will be kept up to date regarding loans in the Fund's portfolio on a monthly basis.

Types of loans

Borrowers in the commercial real estate market in Australia are in the business of the development, investment, acquisition or improvement of real estate. Borrowers pledge security of the real estate to the lender, meaning in case of default the lender can sell the asset to recoup their loan.
Typical loans include:

Land Loan

Land loan - secured against vacant land which is to be developed. Generally, the land will be zoned for residential or commercial development and the borrower requires capital to settle the land and apply for a development application.

Construction Loan

Construction loan - for commercial or residential construction, secured against the land and the future construction. Funds are generally drawn down gradually to meet construction costs.

Commercial Loan

Commercial loan - for acquisition/refinance of an office or industrial asset.

Residual Stock Loan

Residual stock loan - loan secured against completed residential development where apartments or houses remain is generally paid back as remaining stock is sold.

Bridging Loan

Bridging loan - Short term loan to assist borrower to obtain another finance arrangement or to sell the asset.
