Mayfair 101 launches new fixed interest investment product to meet growing demand for non-bank alternatives

The new secured, asset-backed investment product is available to Australian wholesale investors.

IPO Wealth - Mayfair 101 launches new fixed interest investment product to meet growing demand for non-bank alternatives

Mayfair 101 has launched its second fixed interest investment product, M Core Fixed Income, under its Mayfair Platinum brand in response to increasing demand from investors seeking income-producing investments given the low rate environment.

M Core Fixed Income offers wholesale investors the opportunity to earn return rates of up to 4.95% per annum.

High security

Coupled with these returns, the new product features high security.

Following Mayfair 101 group’s launch of non-bank alternative investment brand Mayfair Platinum earlier this year, M Core Fixed Income is a new secured, asset-backed investment product available to wholesale investors in the Australian market.

It marks the second major development since the launch of Mayfair Platinum, the group’s customer-focused brand that provides qualified investors in Australia the opportunity to gain exposure to Mayfair 101’s diversified international investment portfolio.

“Listening to investors”

Mayfair 101 Group’s founder and managing director James Mawhinney said, “We’ve been listening closely to investors who are frustrated by the sustained fall in interest rates.”

He said, “M Core Fixed Income has been launched to provide a secure investment proposition for a growing customer base who are finding that earning a low rate of return on their idle money is not only undesirable but increasingly unsustainable.”

Official launch

The official launch was part of Mayfair Platinum’s involvement in the annual Switzer Income Conference which began in Sydney today and will visit Melbourne and Brisbane next week.

A select launch to existing investors on Monday, November 4, is already generating significant interest.

M Core Fixed Income is secured by a pool of assets with an independent trustee overseeing first-ranking, registered security interests and dollar-for-dollar backing from a collateral pool.

The collateral provided is unencumbered and includes Australian real estate, cash held in the issuer’s dedicated M Core Fixed Income account and other Australian assets pledged by Mayfair 101 group entities.

Customers want additional security

Mawhinney said, “We know that there is a growing appetite for non-bank alternatives, but what we keep hearing again and again, is that alongside fantastic returns, customers want additional security features in their investment products.

“M Core Fixed Income is a secured, asset-backed investment product that provides the benefit of the group’s extensive diversification strategy coupled with our Australian real estate portfolio including our recent strategic investment in Mission Beach and Dunk Island.

“Against the backdrop of record low interest rates, M Core Fixed Income provides customers the opportunity to earn return rates of up to 4.95% per annum on a minimum investment of A$250,000 or above.”
