Presentation by Helen Edwards, K3 Consulting, Accounting & Legal       


Funding is a critical element to clinching a commercial deal. So much so that its intricacies and permutations warrant closer examination for those who are eager to diversify into the commercial market. Experienced commercial investor Mark Kirkland returns to APIA to unpack the various aspects of funding and deal structuring. Dial-in to learn about tried and true methods as well as how to benefit from thinking outside of the box when you are trying to get a deal across the line.

This presentation is a follow-up from Mark Kirkland's talks on How to find the right commercial property to invest in and Financing and due diligence.

Talking points
  • Raising equity capital: How is this done? What are the key considerations? What are the legal parameters? Does it ever get easier? 
  • Banking partner: How to find the right banker to work with. 
  • Types of debt financiers: benefits and risks.

The Tenancy Practice Service and TPS Credit Control work closely with the Auckland Property Investors' Association. Our vision of bringing helpful resources, documents and high quality services to Auckland Property Investors and Property Managers is shared by APIA, so its a partnership that works well. 

The Auckland Property Investors' Association is a great organisation for those who want access to advice and information from a range of industry experts and partners.

Through the Association I found the channels and methods to fund the purchase of property I never dreamed about. Grant Brown

All round it has been one of those things Neil and I felt was really worthwhile belonging to. We have learned so much it has just built our confidence in what we are doing.

I read two articles in the monthly magazine that saved me over $5,000. That is my membership fee for the next 26 years and I am sure I will learn a whole lot more! John Duncan
Fantastic organisation. The networking opportunities are brilliant and provide us with information and opportunities that cannot be obtained anywhere else. We learn something new at every meeting and we've been in this game for nearly 20 years. Pauline and Gyanen Kumar

I find the information obtained from various APIA meetings very useful in guiding my own property investment and rental management.  I also enjoy the networking opportunities with like-minded investors.  I am inspired by other investors’ success and find the more experiences and knowledge that I share with others, the more confident I become.  

Thanks to all APIA event organizers and administrators for your brilliant work.

I like talking to people and learning from their experience because it gives me the confidence to invest well. I think it is a knowledge thing. I now know I am doing things the right way.

My APIA membership has become a total success.

Every time I attend a monthly or regional meeting I come away with so many useful and positive tips that have added value to my property investments and management.

Not only that, the website is a great place for practical advice and useful information. It has now evolved into an important resource for my business.

Talk about value for money! The discounts I have been getting at Bunnings when I present my APIA membership card have more than paid for my annual subscription!
