Risk Management and Compliance

At Argus Property Partners, we’re committed to acting in our clients’ best interests at all times. We work within a system of internal procedures and controls to ensure we comply with all relevant legal and regulatory requirements.

Argus Property Partners risk and compliance framework

We’re licenced

Argus Partners Managed Investments Limited acts as the responsible entity for all our investment offerings. Argus Partners Managed Investments Limited holds Australian Financial Services Licence number 289817.

Compliance adherence

At Argus Partners Managed Investments Limited (APMIL) we adhere to all relevant provisions of the Corporations Law and its AFS Licence by adopting appropriate compliance measures, policies and procedures for the administration of the company.

As part of this process, we’ve developed a comprehensive Compliance Manual, setting out our compliance framework, compliance statements and compliance policies and procedures.

A key part of the compliance framework is the adoption of an Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Terrorism Financing Program. Our processes ensure we can identify, mitigate and manage the risk that the firm may unwittingly facilitate money laundering or financing of terrorism as well as customer identification and verification procedures.

We care about your privacy

We have a Privacy Policy that describes our process for protecting the privacy of personal information in line with the Australian Privacy Principles set out in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) and the Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Act 2017, as amended from time to time.

Cyber security

We recognise the critical risk of a potential cyber security breach and have in place a range of measures to mitigate the risk. This includes engagement with a leading cyber security firm who provides regular risk assessment advice regarding potential threats, together with ongoing monitoring of all IT equipment for evidence of cyber breaches.

Risk management, at every stage of the investment process

Identifying and managing risk is a critical part of assessing each and every investment opportunity. We have developed a thorough due diligence process, which is completed as part of each investment, encompassing physical, legal, financial and environmental risk factors.

The risk assessment and management process continue throughout the investment process, requiring regular re-assessment of threats to each asset, and implementing strategies to mitigate such risks. This includes continual assessment of market conditions and judgment of the optimal hold period for each asset.

We’re insured

Argus Property Partners works with industry leading insurance brokers to ensure that each Fund has the appropriate level of insurance in place, across both public liability and property.
