Trust snapshot

The Trust pays a monthly distribution rate, which commenced at 8.25 cents per unit (cpu) pa at inception in 2009. The distribution was increased to 11.00 cpu pa at commencement of the Further Term in July 2016. Distributions increased to 12.25 cpu pa in July 2021 underpinned by an increase in rental income.

Investment strategy
When the Trust was established, the market sought conservative investment strategies. World markets were experiencing volatility and falling interest rates were reducing the returns offered by cash and fixed interest products.

In response, Cromwell created this simple investment alternative which aimed to provide investors with a monthly distribution over the seven year term, with the additional benefit of tax deferred distributions and capital growth potential1. It featured a transparent structure with no capital support of distributions.

This unlisted trust’s asset is the Energex House Building completed in August 2010. The capital raising was well supported by investors attracted by the monthly distribution yield, the quality of the asset and its strong, long-term lease profile.
