Mulpha is listed on the Malaysian Stock Exchange and is a global investor in high-end property development and investment, retirement, healthcare and infrastructure assets which includes the Intercontinental Hotel in Sydney, Sanctuary Cove, Hayman Island and maintains a strategic stake in the Aveo Group (Australia’s largest owner of retirement communities). The partnership brings together longstanding and experienced groups that specialise in the financing, property development and investment, and funds management markets in Australia.
WPDM will deliver attractive risk adjusted returns to investors by providing tailored first mortgage lending solutions to borrowers. With regulatory pressure being applied to the Australian Banks and with the Banks pulling back on loan parameters in segments including property development and investment, there is growing opportunities to replace the funding not being provided by banks through structured investments for investors. First mortgage lending provides strong capital protection, as well as attractive risk adjusted returns, a strong security position, and diversification benefits.
