Revolution Private Debt PIE Fund (NZD)

New Zealand Wholesale investors now have access to the flagship Australian and New Zealand private debt strategy managed by one of Australia’s leading and most experienced firms specialising in private debt.

The Revolution Private Debt PIE Fund (NZD) (the ‘Fund’) provides New Zealand wholesale investors with exposure to Revolution’s Australian and New Zealand private debt strategy, established in December 2019 and previously accessible only to Australian investors. Established as a Portfolio Investment Entity (PIE) Fund, it provides indirect access to a portfolio of senior secured loans across the private corporate loan, real estate debt and asset back securities markets.

The Fund, through its investment in the Revolution Private Debt Fund II (the ‘Underlying Fund’) is designed to generate risk-adjusted returns while offering potential diversification benefits with low correlation to traditional public markets, helping to reduce overall portfolio risk and enhance capital stability.

The Fund targets an annual return of the RBNZ Official Cash Rate (‘OCR’) plus 4% to 5% p.a. (after fees and before tax) and aims to achieve this return with low volatility and with the benefit of having security over the underlying assets.
