Use of Platform and Services
you use the Platform and the Services; and
you, together with other Members, collectively participate in the various Investment Opportunities,
subject to any Investment Participation Agreement that you may become a party to.
Participating in Co-Investing Opportunities
When you access the Platform, you will have access to a variety of investment-grade Investment Opportunities located worldwide. In order to participate in any co-investment transaction:
please select the Investment Opportunity that you wish to participate in;
ensure that you have sufficient funds in the Investor Account to meet your Principal Sum. If there are insufficient funds, you must deposit sufficient monies into the Investor Account to meet your Principal Sum by the deadline for the drawdown; and
execute the Investment Participation Agreement, and all other documents that are required, for the relevant Investment Opportunity.
The terms of the Investment Participation Agreement shall only become binding if the Target Amount of the Investment Opportunity is matched by the aggregate Investment Commitments within the Availability Period.
The Investor Account is provided as a short-term facility to hold any funds you wish to utilise when participating in any property co-investment opportunities. The Investor Account allows you to enter into an Investment Commitment on demand and with minimal delay. It is provided to you for convenience and it is not intended to be a service in its own right. There shall be no interest payable on funds deposited in the Investor Account.
Funds in the Investor Account are kept and maintained separately from RV's own bank accounts, and RV shall have no access to the funds in the Investor Account.
You undertake to remit the funds from your Designated Account to the Investor Account and for the such funds to be held according to the terms and conditions set out in the Platform Terms.
Payments to the Investor Account
Prior to remitting funds to the Investor Account, you shall provide RV with the particulars of your Designated Account. You shall also provide the transaction remittance information, such as the transaction reference number, date of remittance and amount remitted to RV each time you make a remittance to the Investor Account.
All fund remittance to the Investor Account shall only be effected from the Designated Account. The Designated Account must be held in your name and no third party payments shall be permitted. You shall ensure that all funds are forwarded net of any bank service charges, which must be borne by you directly.
You acknowledge that the date of remittance does not evidence that monies have been transferred to the Investor Account. Only an email confirmation sent out by RV to your designated email address shall be conclusive evidence (in the absence of manifest error) that the monies remitted by you has been credited to the Investor Account.
Utilisation of Investor Account Funds
When you make an Investment Commitment, RV will reserve an amount equivalent to the Principal Sum of that Investment Commitment from your monies held in the Investor Account. If there are no (or insufficient) funds standing to your credit in the Investor Account, the Investment Commitment will not be deemed to be finalised unless the Investment Commitment funds have been deposited into the Investor Account by the stipulated deadline in the Investment Opportunity. You will not be permitted to withdraw or utilise this earmarked amount for any other Investment Opportunities for a period ending on the earlier of:
when the Investment Opportunity for which the Investment Commitment was made is withdrawn or terminated, whether or not the Target Amount is matched;
when the Target Amount for that Investment Opportunity is not matched by the Availability Period; or
if the Principal Sum has been utilised towards the Investment Opportunity, when your share of the profits resulting from the sale of the property is credited into the Investor Account.
To facilitate the ease of transferring funds from your Designated Account to the Investor Account, you may utilise your bank's eDDA facility (if available). When you utilise the eDDA facility, you agree and acknowledge that:
the use of the eDDA facility is subject to the terms and conditions specified by the bank where your Designated Account is maintained;
the use of the eDDA facility may be subject to charges and fees imposed by the bank;
you shall ensure that the amount you wish to transfer via the eDDA facility is correct;
you irrevocably authorise RV to deduct such amount as you have specified in your eDDA instructions from your Designated Account;
RV shall not be responsible for any claims, liabilities, losses, costs and expense arising or resulting from your request not being processed or if the fund transfer is unsuccessful for any reason whatsoever.
If the Target Amount is in a currency that is different from the currency standing to your credit in the Investor Account, RV will arrange for your funds to be converted to the relevant currency at the prevailing exchange rates set by RV's appointed foreign exchange service provider. You agree and acknowledge that:
the conversion shall be subject to the terms and conditions of the appointed foreign exchange service provider; and
RV shall not be responsible for any losses arising from the foreign exchange conversion, or if the conversion cannot be made within the Availability Period for any reason beyond RV's reasonable control.
You hereby irrevocably authorise RV and the Account Administrator:
to release the Principal Sum specified in your Investment Commitment towards the payment of the acquisition cost of the Investment upon the SPV entering into a contract for the acquisition of the aforesaid Investment;
to release such sums from the funds available to you in the Investor Account to fulfill your obligations or liabilities in accordance with the Platform Terms, or the terms of any Investment Participation Agreement that you are a party to.
Payments to You
We will only permit any request for the release of funds in the Investor Account to you if:
such amounts have not been reserved and/or designated for withdrawal to fulfill your obligations under any Investment Commitment and/or Investment Participation Agreement;
you have made a withdrawal request via the Platform; and
such withdrawal is approved by RV and the Account Administrator.
Subject to Clause 8.1, the requested amount will only be credited to your Designated Account within seven (7) Business Days net of bank charges and fees, if any, imposed by the remitting bank.
All funds to be remitted to you shall be in the currency standing to your credit in the Investor Account. If the Designated Account does not accept funds in the relevant currency, the funds will either be converted according to the prevailing spot rate of exchange (which shall not be disputed by you in any circumstances) of the Investor Account Bank or your bank where the Designated Account is opened net of any applicable bank charges and fees. Such amount shall be the final and conclusive amount to be received by you.
To prevent fraud, all funds payable to you shall only be remitted to the Designated Account. No payments to any third parties will be permitted. If the Designated Account is not a Singapore-based bank account, prior to remitting any monies, RV and/or the Account Administrator reserve the right to request for further documents and information for the purpose of verifying the account holder's identity.
If you change your Designated Account, you shall notify RV within three (3) Business Days of such changes. Neither RV nor the Account Administrator shall be responsible for any losses, damages, interests, claims, costs and expenses that you may suffer as a result of your failure to notify us of such changes by aforesaid deadline.
Matching of Investment Opportunity and Investment Participation Agreement
To participate in an Investment Opportunity, you must make an Investment Commitment which is the way you communicate to us your decision to commit the Principal Sum towards the relevant Investment Opportunity. You are not allowed to change your Principal Sum once you have submitted the Investment Commitment over the Platform.
You can make as many Investment Commitments as you like, but the Investment Commitments will only be deemed confirmed when you have deposited sufficient funds in Investor Account to meet the Principal Sum of each Investment Commitment by the deadlines specified for each Investment Opportunity. Notwithstanding the foregoing, RV reserves the right not to permit you to participate in an Investment Opportunity.
When you make an Investment Commitment, the Platform will aggregate your Principal Sum to the Principal Sums committed by other Members in respect of the specific Investment. Investment Commitments are irrevocable and may not be withdrawn once submitted over the Platform.
If the Target Amount is matched by the aggregate Investment Commitments within the Availability Period, the funds will be utilised, amongst others, towards payment of the relevant Investment's acquisition cost and incorporation of the SPV that will own the Investment.
If the Target Amount is not matched by the aggregate Investment Commitments within the Availability Period, the Investment Opportunity is deemed withdrawn and your Principal Sum shall be remitted back to you and credited into the Investor Account, free of interest.
If the Target Amount is successfully matched within the Availability Period, the following shall take place:
RV shall, in its sole discretion, incorporate a suitable special purpose vehicle ("SPV"), such as a limited partnership, a limited liability partnership or a legal entity (including a private limited company), to acquire and operate the Business;
depending on the type of SPV incorporated and the nature of the Investment Opportunity, the participating Members will be registered as partners or shareholders of the SPV or as Note holders;
RV shall nominate its representative as managing partner or director of the SPV to oversee and manage the operations of the SPV and the Business;
the Administrator shall engage lawyers and other advisors to conduct the necessary due diligence checks on the seller or owner of the property (as the case may be), the sponsor, trustee or manager and such other parties involved in the transaction;
subject to the satisfactory results being received from the due diligence conducted on the property and aforesaid parties, the SPV shall issue an LOI or obtain an Option to participate in the Investment;
where applicable, the Account Administrator shall remit to the seller (or its solicitors) a deposit out of the Target Amount;
the SPV shall execute the definitive agreement(s) for the acquisition of the Investment, or such other document as is required by the laws of the country where the property is situated;
upon execution of the definitive agreement(s), all participating Members shall be deemed to have entered into an Investment Participation Agreement governing their relationship with one another, the SPV and the property;
where applicable, upon completion of acquisition of the Investment, the Account Administrator shall remit the balance cost of acquisition to the seller, or its solicitors;
notwithstanding the foregoing, if the transaction is aborted for any reason, your Principal Sum shall be refunded to you free of interest. RV shall not be liable to you in any way for the abortive transaction.
You hereby understand and agree that:
when you place an Investment Commitment in relation to an Investment Opportunity, you are, in effect, committing to acquire an interest in the SPV that will own the Investment. You will not be named as a party to the definitive agreement(s) relating to the acquisition of the Investment;
your interest in the SPV will be expressed as a percentage of your Principal Sum contained in your Investment Commitment against the Target Amount of the relevant Investment Opportunity;
RV, its employees or affiliates may, from time to time, participate in Investment Opportunities; and
