Terrain Placement Services Pty Ltd (Terrain) is a leading Australian advisor to international fund managers seeking to position and then fundraise from the Australian Pension Fund and Institutional Investment Markets. We have a proven track record, working with our clients across all asset classes.

We are selective in the fund managers we partner with & will only establish a relationship where we:

  • can add significant value to their Australian marketing & fundraising efforts;
  • believe there is likely to be interest in their investment strategy; &
  • do not have a client currently marketing a fund that would directly compete with a prospective client's fund.

To protect the relationships that we have forged in the Australian institutional investor market & our ability to access to key industry players, our clients must be:

  • a best of breed manager with a demonstrable, proven & lasting performance track record driven by a stable team;
  • truly aligned with the interests of investors through meaningful co-investment from their teams and well-structured fees; &
  • committed to building long term relationships with Australian investors, their advisors and Terrain.
About Us

Terrain evolved from Terrain Capital Limited, a Melbourne based independent corporate advisory, whose founding Directors have been working together since 1993. Terrain completed its first transaction for an Australian real estate fund manager in May 2005. Since early 2006, Terrain has focused on helping international fund managers market their investment products in Australia. We initially focused advising clients in Private Equity, before broadening into unlisted Real Estate. Post September 2008 Terrain expanded our advisory services to include unlisted Infrastructure & Alternative Credit strategies. Since March 2010 we have advised clients on listed investment strategies, covering Public Equities, Global Fixed Income, G-REITs, Listed Infrastructure, and unlisted investment strategies, covering Timberlands & Contingent Credit.

Terrain Capital Markets Limited another associated company of Terrain holds an Australian Financial Services Licence No. 240284, which allows Terrain to act as a Placement Agent and Strategic Adviser to domestic and international fund managers looking to access capital from Australia. Our client services, commercial activities and our team are required to comply with the relevant provisions of the Corporations Act, the ASIC Act, the Financial Services Transactions Act and other relevant regulations pertaining to our financial services business.
