We’re here to help

Active Property Group was formed to help everyday Australians gain access to investment opportunities that fall outside the usual shares and residential property markets.

She took the step up to the Managing Director role in 2022, however, she will still be responsible for maintaining solid relationships with our investors and ensuring we deliver the best results possible.

The APG Team

Behind the scenes we have a team of accountants, IT professionals and marketing specialists who ensure that our investors distributions are paid on time, our systems are running smoothly and our website and marketing materials are up to date. We’re a tight-knit team who genuinely want to deliver great results for our investors. You can read more about APG here.

The PMA Team

Private Mortgages Australia is our sister company, and their team of lending and credit experts look after the sourcing of the borrowers that make up our Pooled Mortgage Fund portfolio. Their role is to work closely with borrowers and brokers, conduct extensive due diligence before proceeding with a loan and then manage the loan to make sure it’s paid back on time. The APG and PMA team work closely with each other so that we have a solid understanding of the upcoming loans that require funding and so that we can effectively manage our cash position, ensuring we have the funds on hand to fund loans but not too much cash from loan repayments that will cause a drag on returns.
