Recently, Asha and Justin had their property valued at $600,000. With $100,000 owing on the home, they sought professional advice from their accountant and decided that they’re prepared to use $360,000 in available equity.
Asha and Justin arranged to speak to our home loan consultant. They explained their aims and their investment plan. The home loan consultant informed them of the Portfolio Package as a solution, based on their investment plan.
Secured by their residential property, the Portfolio Package facility allows Asha and Justin to structure their personal and investment borrowings the way they want. This allows multiple sub-accounts, with the flexibility to move or change their loans across the sub-accounts (a new application will be required).
With an overall portfolio limit of $360,000, Asha and Justin received investment advice from a financial planner and decided to split their equity across various investment options. For example, $280,000 towards an investment property, $30,000 towards direct shares, AUD$40,000 towards managed funds and the remaining $10,000 towards a renovation.
Sub-accounts are a way for Asha and Justin to structure and manage their investments and expenditure. With each of their sub-accounts, Asha and Justin will also be provided with an Investor account in which they can deposit their rental income from their investment property or access funds (such as to pay expenses) whenever they want. Asha and Justin can also save on interest with an offset account.
Our Portfolio Package also provides Asha and Justin the option of a Visa Gold credit card with a pre-approved limit. This offers convenience in case of an emergency, such as the need to pay for emergency repair work on their investment property, or to simply pay the registration on their new car. Or, they can use their Visa Gold credit card for everyday purchases.
