Artesian’s Significant Investor Visa (SIV) compliant VC fund provides diversified exposure to early stage ventures with tax-free returns.
The Significant Investor Visa Program:
The Australian Government’s Significant Investor Visa (‘SIV’) program offers a concessional opportunity for high net worth investors looking to migrate to Australia.
What are complying investments for the SIV?
From 1 July 2015, complying investments for Significant Investor visa applicants include:
- At least A$500,000 in eligible Australian funds administered by Innovation Australia (an AFOF, an ESVCLP or a VCLP). Note the Government expects to increase this to $1million for new applications within two years as the market responds;
- At least A$1.5 million in an eligible managed fund(s) or Listed Investment Companies (LICs) that invest in emerging companies listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX); and
- A ‘balancing investment’ of up to A$3 million in fund(s) or LICs that invest in a combination of eligible assets that include other ASX listed companies, eligible Australian corporate bonds or notes, annuities and real property in Australia (subject to the 10% limit on residential real estate).
