Phillips Fox advised Tankstream Capital Limited and St George Bank Institutional Property on the establishment and debt financing of the Tankstream Property Investments Fund, a new retail property security fund aimed at producing institutional-type returns for investors.
Phillips Fox corporate partner Andrew Mutton and corporate lawyer Elizabeth Mifsud acted for Tankstream Capital.
Phillips Fox finance senior associate, Ben Burney and finance lawyer Hugo Thistlewood, acted for St George Institutional Property, which provided acquisition and working capital facilities to the fund.
Burney said the documentation for the deal was “relatively complex”.
“Given the fund’s investment strategy, the structure of its investment portfolio and the associated compliance and reporting matrices, it was essential that both the fund and the debt documents dovetailed with each other adequately,” Burney said.
