THE DOMACOM FUND
Benefits of Fractional Property Investing with DomaCom
The DomaCom Fund is an ASIC registered Managed Investment Scheme (MIS) that allows you to invest in one or more properties of your choice via a syndicate-like/fractional investment structure. This means the DomaCom Fund enables you to choose a property of your choice rather than submit to a fund manager’s selection.
Once you have chosen the property/properties and how much you wish to invest, your accredited DomaCom financial adviser will liaise with us to provide instructions for the Fund to buy on your behalf. It really is that simple!

Chief Executive Officer
With two decades as an IT consultant under his belt, Arthur moved into financial services, building operating systems and investment administration platforms for high profile broking houses and fund managers, before founding the very successful Praemium portfolio business, which listed in 2006.
Arthur’s belief in the power of technology to transform markets, improve efficiency and engage consumers led him to introduce some of the advanced concepts he helped pioneer in the equity markets to the property sector, a market that has been relatively unchanged for generations.
To drive this forward he founded DomaCom Limited, now an ASX listed company (ASX:DCL), in 2011.
The result is fractional investment established on an improved technology platform delivered via a unique legal structure, effectively breaking down high-cost assets into affordable parcels enabling all Australians to participate in these assets with low entry levels.
The application of his vision is currently seen in the fractional property market and will soon be available in affordable housing solutions, corporate bonds, lending and equity release for senior Australians.
