Head of Funds Management Appointed

May 2016

The transition of Angas Securities to a mortgage fund manager continues successfully. The Board has engaged Brian Doherty to fill the newly created position of Head of Funds Management. His dedicated role will ensure consistent delivery of services to all Angas Securities investors across the retail product range including Angas Prime Income Fund (“APIF”).

Since its establishment on 29 March 2000, Angas Securities has specialised in raising funds from the public for investment in first registered mortgages over real property. There remains strong demand for the funding of commercial property loans within the qualitative lending parameters that APIF requires. This has been enhanced by a drop in competition in recent years amongst non bank lenders. The primary security for any APIF loan must be a registered mortgage over freehold property. Second or subsequent mortgages will never be accepted as prime security. Borrowers who take out loans from APIF are often those who do not deal with traditional lenders such as banks or who may not meet the lending criteria of such lenders. Business proprietors, self employed borrowers or investors in property that does not generate income are amongst the class of typical APIF borrowers. As an asset based lender, APIF places primary reliance on the first mortgage security that is held. APIF can and does realise that security to obtain recovery of loan advances. This is done by APIF acting as mortgagee exercising power of sale.
