Minter Ellison’s funds management team assists IBA with establishment of I-REIT

Minter Ellison has worked with Indigenous Business Australia (IBA) on the establishment of the Indigenous Real-Estate Investment Trust (I-REIT), an initiative designed to assist and enhance Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander self-management and self-sufficiency.

I-REIT offers indigenous organisations access to a diversified commercial property portfolio with long-term stable financial returns.

The law firm’s advisory team was led by partner Stuart Johnson, who heads the funds management practice, with partners Karen Payne, Nathan Deveson, Rhys Guild and Virginia Briggs, special counsel Michael Ward, Liz von Muenster, Julie Purbrick and Cathy Hume and senior associates Nicole Smith, Andrew Yik and Rebecca Healy.
