AIMS Financial Group – “Bridge from Australia to Asia”

Established in 1991, AIMS Financial Group (AIMS) (www.aims.com.au) is a diversified financial services and investment group, active in the areas of mortgage lending, securitisation, investment banking, funds management, property investment, high-tech investment and AIMS also owns 100% of Sydney Stock Exchange (www.ssx.sydney).

Since 1999, AIMS has raised approximately A$4.0 billion in funds from the capital markets. Of this, AIMS has issued approximately A$3.0 billion residential mortgage- backed securities, with most of them rated AAA by both Standard & Poors and Fitch Ratings, and has originated over A$8.0 billion of high quality prime home loans since 1991.

AIMS has actively introduced a number of international investors into the Australian markets and to date has also attracted over A$1.0 billion of investments into Australia from overseas investors.

AIMS is also the investment manager for AIMS’ funds, which amounts to approximately A$1.9 billion fund. AIMS Funds Management Group is a specialist in the investment management of direct property, real estate securities and mortgage assets. This includes being investment manager for AIMS AMP Capital Industrial REIT (http://www.aimsampcapital.com), MacarthurCook Office Property Trust, AIMS Commercial Mortgage Fund, and AIMS Property Securities Fund, etc .In 2009, AIMS acquired the ASX listed fund manager, MacarthurCook Limited (MCK). At the time of acquisition, MacarthurCook's fund management business was severely distressed with each of the 4 listed funds and a number of unlisted funds being starved of capital and highly leveraged with asset values decreasing. Under AIMS' leadership, MacarthurCook's funds have been turned around, stabilised and improved the outcome for investors.

AIMS' head office is in Sydney, Australia, and it has businesses across Australia, China, Hong Kong and Singapore. Our highly qualified, professional and experienced cross-cultural teams enable AIMS to bridge the gap between Australia and China across various sectors.
