Allied Prime Finance has recorded a net profit before tax of $1.98 million for the half year ended 31 December 2006.

Allied Prime was formed last year through the amalgamation of Allied Farmers Finance and Prime Finance.

“We are pleased with the performance of Allied Prime over the half year, taking into account the challenging operating environment and the focus on bedding down the amalgamation,” Allied Farmers Group chief executive David Bale said.

Allied Prime had total assets of $159.6 million as at 31 December 2006, including $151.6 million of finance receivables, and its shareholders funds were $20.1 million.

Australian income fund comes to NZ
Australian-based funds management and property development group, Fincorp Group, has launched its Enhanced Income Fund (EIF) into New Zealand.

The fund is forecast to distribute returns to investors at a rate of 8.5% annually for a two years term.

EIF is an unlisted unit trust which will invest in a portfolio of commercial loans secured by first and second mortgages over real property. Mortgages will be for development and construction or investment purposes, diversified across the residential, commercial, industrial, retail, rural and specialty property sectors.

Fincorp has a Capital Loss Insurance Policy with underwriters at Lloyd’s of London. This policy insures 100% of the capital loss on qualifying loans, subject to a maximum aggregate claimable under the Insurance Policy of A$10 million annually.
