Property Intensive: Investing in property, property development and investing in property funds

Published on 12 Apr 2011 | Took place at RACV Club, Melbourne , VIC

Real property underpins the investment strategies of many entities, whether it be by way of passive investment, as a property developer or through property funds. It is therefore essential that we understand the relevant and constantly evolving taxation, structuring and funding issues relevant to these investments.

The first half of this program focused on direct property investments as a passive investor or property developer and the second half on property funds.

This event gave participants the opportunity to attend the whole session or to elect into the sessions most relevant to their areas of practice.

Materials from session 2 were originally presented at the 4th Annual Property Day in South Australia on 18th February 2011 and can be downloaded there.
