Earn Monthly Income

Real Estate and Real Estate related projects have been the primary sources of wealth creation for generations of Australians. However entering into a Real Estate related project typically requires substantial amounts of capital. It also imposes a significant risk due to the high capital involved in one project.

To get around this people have been pooling their funds and resources together by forming syndicates within friends and family. However there are limits to how many projects you can do in this fashion and the amounts required are still large. Also you may not always be able to access quality projects within your small network of friends and family.

Separately a need was felt to provide investors with an investment vehicle that will provide them with regular monthly returns rather than get paid at the end of the project which can last for several years. This is being achieved by investing in Real Estate funds that have historically delivered monthly returns.

And finally instead of exposing investors to the risk of an individual project's failure a need was felt for an aggregate or pooled investment which spreads investor money across multiple Real Estate related investments leading to spreading the risk across several projects. It is also important that investors have strong security.

This experience carried over into private banking with global financial services powerhouse Citibank. He advised high net wealth clients across cash, FX, bonds and structured investment products. Craig has a passion for investing, portfolio management and wealth creation strategies, of which he believes property is a core asset class to enable this. The strong Australian property market, people’s love of property as a wealth builder, the need for gentrification of older suburbs and to meet population growth, made the transition to property development a logical choice. Enabling clients large and small to get exposure to simple projects, affordable entry levels with tangible returns on offer, is a key driver for Craig and Smart Capital Property & Development. Craig is focused on delivering great outcomes for investors.
