Distribution Reinvestment Authority Form
This webpage explains how to make or update a distribution reinvestment authority form (DRAF) election for some or all of your Passive Income (USA Commercial Property) Fund (US Fund) distributions to be automatically applied as a top up investment in the Strategic Opportunities (Growth & Income) Fund (SOGIF).
Zero Contribution Fee
As you may know, any automatic reinvestment of your US Fund distribution as a top up to your SOGIF investment via the DRAF process attracts a 0% contribution fee. This can result in a significant saving.
Please note that in order to participate you must first have opened a SOGIF investment account in the same name as the entity holding your US Fund investment.
Opening a SOGIF investment account requires that you complete your application and identification requirements, remit your investment sum (min. $10,000), and be issued with a SOGIF investor number. To be effective this will need to be done at least three business day prior to a US Fund distribution being paid.
Detailed information about how to invest in SOGIF can be found here.
If you are not a SOGIF investor and make a DRAF election then your distribution will be paid as cash.
