ResiFund understands how important it is, to not only have in depth industry expertise, but also to have very strong corporate governance and accountability,.

We have therefore established an Independent Investment Committee (IIC), made up of experts with a long history of governance in managed investments. As the name suggests, the majority of IIC members are independent from the Fund and the Manager, meaning that they have no conflicts of interest, and their role is governed by the IIC Charter.

Our IIC currently comprises four members of which two are independent:

Murray Jones

Independent Compliance Committee

The Board has in place an Independent Investment Committee (IIC) for the Fund. The IIC is responsible for reviewing property acquisitions against the approved Investment Objective and Strategy. It also seeks to add further value to the management of the Fund through the substantial experience IIC members have in residential property.

Our IIC comprises three members of which two are independent and a third being Matthew Lewison (ResiFund Director). As at the date of this PDS, there are two independent members.
