Clarence Property's Westlawn Property Trust closes oversubscribed for $22 million

Property fund manager Clarence Property's latest investment offer for its flagship Westlawn Property Trust (WPT) has closed over subscribed for $22 million.

It received strong support from investors in South East Queensland (SEQ) and Northern New South Wales (NNSW).

Over 60% of the capital raised came from new investors with approximately 55% of those funds from self-managed superannuation funds (SMSFs).

Both new and existing investors have backed Clarence Properties' strategy of purchasing assets in high growth areas in the Noosa to Yamba corridor.

WPT has more than $290 million in assets from Yamba to the Sunshine Coast, including shopping centres Yamba Fair and Byron Fair and the 480 lot Epiq master planned community at Lennox Head.

The fund provides investors the opportunity to tap into successful developments and assets like Epiq Lennox, which sold out of its first three stages, each within a week. 

Clarence Property managing director Peter Fahey (pictured above) says WPT continues to have a strong presence in NNSW and SEQ.

"The fund has a history of solid performance and has not failed to pay a monthly distribution to investors in its 24 years, so we have a reputation for reliability. A number of our investors have been with us since inception," he said.

"Many investors opted to re-invest in the latest offering because the Trust has a strong base for growth, with a number of key development projects commencing this year and several new acquisitions of blue chip commercal retail and commercial property recently made in Brisbane." 

These acquisitions come hand in hand with the recent appointment of ex-Colliers International Gold Coast Director Darrel Irwin as a Director of Clarence Property, who will assist in growing the WPT investor base in the Gold Coast and Brisbane markets. 

Irwin was previously Colliers Gold Coast director-in-charge and special projects national director for 13 years. 

WPT is expected to launch to the market its next offering for investment later this year.
