About Aviva Investors Secure Income REIT

The Company was incorporated in England and Wales on 27 September 2017 as a public limited company. The Company will, pursuant to the Investment Management Agreement, be externally managed by its investment manager, Aviva Investors UK Fund Services Limited, which is incorporated as a company limited by shares in the United Kingdom and is wholly-owned and controlled by Aviva. The Investment Manager is authorised and regulated by the FCA to perform fund management activities and to act as an alternative investment fund manager. The Company intends to carry on business as a REIT, subject to meeting the necessary qualifying conditions.

The Company will invest primarily in a diversified portfolio of high-quality long-lease commercial real estate assets in the UK. Properties will be leased to predominantly investment grade tenants. The Company will make its investments directly or through holdings in special purpose vehicles.

The Company’s primary objective is to deliver a secure and growing income return together with capital stability through typically upward only rent reviews linked to inflation or subject to fixed uplifts, together with the potential for capital growth by way of focused asset management and strategic acquisitions, with the intention of creating value for Shareholders. As at the date of this Prospectus, the Portfolio Manager has entered into exclusivity arrangements and/or advanced negotiations on behalf of the Company in respect of the acquisition of the four assets comprising the Target Portfolio of approximately £85 million.

Pursuant to the Portfolio Management Agreement, the Portfolio Manager will be responsible for providing investment related services (including asset sourcing) to the Investment Manager and has discretion to make investment decisions subject to matters involving a conflict of interest which require the approval of Independent Directors.

Risk Warning pre-IPO’s, IPO’s & Secondary Issues

Investments in pre-IPO’s and IPO’s involve a high degree of risk and are not suitable for all investors. A pre-IPO issue is the funding given to the company before listing. There is no guarantee that the company will list, but if it does then there is normally an increase from the pre-IPO to the IPO price, representing a profit. However, even when a company is listed on, say,  the AIM market, it is considered to be a high-risk investment, and will have wider spreads on price and be more illiquid and it may be difficult to sell the shares on a short-term basis and in some circumstances it may be difficult to sell at any price. All investments made into an IPO or new issue or in a secondary issue should always be made solely on the basis of the information provided in the relevant prospectus and any other supplementary documentation. The specific risks will be detailed in the prospectus but the value of your investment can go down as well as up and you may not get back the money you invested.  You should be sure that you fully understand the purpose of, and the reason for, the fundraising. Before you decide to invest you should obtain information regarding the business plan and note the risk factors. If you have any doubts about the suitability of an investment you should seek professional advice.
