What others say about High Livez

“We invested in High Livez seeking a better interest return for our deposits and the safety it provides. It has delivered in spades. The service from the directors and the close knit staff has been first class and transparent. They have turned out to be real people not machines. The thing we most like about High Livez is that they do not mind it  if we spend the interest earned on our cruise ship travels!” - Edgar Steed, Current Investor since 2014

“We invested in High Livez to get stability and consistent income that is higher than the cash rate. It has delivered reasonable income with preservation of capital - which is important. The service I have received is professional. What I most like about High Livez is the way it has delivered preservation of capital and higher income than the cash rate. - Mark Russi, Current Investor since 2015

I invested in High Livez because I wanted higher, secure and consistent yield than was offered by the banks. It has delivered all the above. The service I have received is excellent in all aspects. I like High Livez because the service is easy going, friendly and expert. - Leigh Nevett, Current Investor since 2014

Our expectations have been met and often exceeded. Return on investment is excellent and management seem to certainly have their “eye on the ball”. Even the most modest investor is treated with the utmost courtesy and respect.
I appreciate the high return available when investing with High Livez, and this has allowed us to enjoy lots of exciting travel opportunities and a good quality of life. I also appreciate the fact that when contacting Firstmac the experience is made easy, not the usual call centre response, but largely the same delightful staff one has spoken to for five years or more. Very reassuring! - Diane Steed, Current Investor since 2014

"The performance of High Livez has been strong, outperforming its benchmark and peers. Management fees are low at 0.60 per cent pa(including expenses), there are no withdrawal or other fees, and no buy/sell spread. Also it seems to meet the 'purpose test' for a unitised investment as it facilitates access for retail investors to the RMBS market - a market that is usually only accessible to institutional investors." - Switzer Super Report, Dec 2012

"With income being paid monthly, the High Livez fund could provide a useful way for investors to access Australian property market returns without the risk attached to specific properties.- Eureka Report, Dec 2011

"Potential for consistent and reliable income with reduced volatility from an asset class sector usually only available to institutions." - The Australian, Dec 2011
