Keystone Private Foundation Launched….

The Keystone Private Foundation Public Ancillary Fund has been launched and can raise funds from the public.

Our General Fund

The core of the foundation is a General Fund where businesses, employees and individuals can make tax-deductible donations. Pooled resources create stronger investment power, therefore larger gifts to make a greater difference. The General Fund will distribute funds to charities that have the greatest need, or the gift will make a great contribution to fulfilling their purposes.

Individual Sub Fund

We provide the option of a personalised Sub Fund where donors can create a lasting individual legacy that will be held separately from the General Fund.

This provides a cheaper and more efficient way to deal with the compliance, governance and administration of a self-managed fund. It provides an educational experience as part of a broader family continuity program.


• Create a legacy for the future

• Support your charities of choice

• A simple and tax-effective structure for your philanthropy

• Grow your philanthropic capital – make a greater, lasting difference

• Peace of mind that the management of the fund and donations are in trusted, independent and transparent hands

Lessons from Private Family Money Management

Joshua Derrington Keystone Private Wealth

You are not accountable to institutional asset consultants – your liquidity requirements are entirely yours alone, as are your liabilities and your underlying circle of competence.

Truly breaking it down, underlying inflation, your propensity to remain rational, your ability to appoint quality advisors while controlling your ego should be your biggest concerns – not your portfolio’s Beta or its Sharpe ratio.

Are you tactically asset allocated like the Future Fund? No.

Does it matter? Absolutely not.
You aren’t an institutional superfund – do it your way and work on what matters to you, and pick the right people to help you.
It’s a massive advantage, not a disadvantage.

1. Take your time and design a system that suits you.

It’s important to acknowledge there is no one right answer and that everyone’s timeline is different.

“He who holds the gold sets the rules.” Don’t feel any pressure to do anything and don’t be afraid to hold cash as a default.

The stock market could be going vertical right now, it could be plunging. What the market is doing is irrelevant. What your friends are doing is irrelevant.

2. Don’t get on the envy trolley. Your only competition is your ego and inflation, it is not the Future fund or your mate down the road.

Antifragility is the combination of aggressiveness plus paranoia — clip your downside, build competence and conviction, trust your asset allocation, protect yourself from extreme harm, and let the upside, the positive Black Swans, take care of itself.

3. Identify what you’re good at and how you’re going to use it as a strength.

First, try to establish what you and the people who know you believe you have credibility in doing.

Outsource outside areas of competence and build a framework around you to assess your credibility and that of potential partners, using this to decide on how to divide your capital.

Credibility = proven competence + relationships + integrity

If you don’t trust your outsourced partners to manage your money, sit in cash; if you do, give them the money and allow them the freedom to do their job within clear boundaries.

Control the controllable

  1. Asset Alocation
  2. Spending (Ego) vs. Saving

K2 Private in the News – Pacific Square snapped up for $20.9m in Marquette value play

Financial Review website - by Matthew Cranston

The below is from an article on the Financial Review website by Matthew Cranston dated 12 October 2016, at 4:55pm:

‘Marquette Properties has purchased the Pacific Square retail complex near AMP Capital’s massive Pacific Fair Shopping Centre on the Gold Coast for $20.9 million.

The Pacific Square property, while serving as a strong income asset for its new owners, is also one of the largest development sites on the Gold Coast and could offer an ideal residential property play into the future.

The deal, which was brokered in an off market transaction through K2 Private’s Stuart Moody, represented a passing yield of 7.2 per cent.

The single level retail and office asset at Mermaid Beach has 7355 square metres of net lettable area on a site of 17,300 square metres with 240 carparks.

The asset is 100 per cent leased to tenants who have been at the centre for an average tenure of 10 years.

Tenants include the Queensland state government, Supercheap Auto and Snap Fitness.

Pacific Square is Marquette’s fourth retail acquisition in the last six months alongside the St Lucia Village in St Lucia, Brisbane, for $10.2 million, Festival Towers in Brisbane CBD for $22.7 million and Bushland Beach Plaza in Townsville for $5.5 million.

Marquette Properties’ managing director Toby Lewis said the new property would allow his team to add significant value in the future.

“As well as being a stable investment with a significant rental reversion, the asset has enormous future development upside,” Mr Lewis said.

“We believe the current day development value and replacement cost value exceed the investment value price we have acquired the asset for.

“The asset has excellent retail fundamentals and is consistent with our investment philosophy of buying assets that we can drastically change the value of and be a ‘pricemaker’ at exit.”

Mr Moody said the property, which is zoned for eight levels of residential, was a prized asset.

“We see it as an awesome investment because it’s one of the largest development plays on the Gold Coast,” he said.’
