Overview of land banking
Land banking is the process of investing in (identifying and purchasing) undeveloped land with a view to increasing its value over time through holding, rezoning and developing.
The concept of land banking via the DomaCom Fund is to provide a vehicle that will enable a number of investors to acquire an area of land zoned for rural or agricultural use that will, due to growth in the urban corridor, eventually be re-zoned to residential.
The investment objective is to hold the land for the long term to see the property increase in value as population/housing demand sees re-zoning occur to create new suburbs.
The opportunity for investors to obtain exposure to land banking assets was previously the domain of institutional investors.
The above graph shows the evolution of land valuations and potential profit of land banking.

The Badgerys Creek land banking opportunity
DomaCom will soon offer investors the opportunity via the DomaCom Fund to own units in a sub-fund that will acquire the Rossmore/Badgerys Creek land site, with the aim to provide investors with strong capital growth in the vicinity of 10 years.
In a traditional method of land banking, most of the profit goes to the developer who would have control of all the value-added activities in the land development process. Through this land banking opportunity offered by DomaCom and KSI Investments, investors will be able to receive some of the expected profit that traditionally has only been available to developers.
DomaCom has developed the DomaCom Fund so that any number of investors can come together to pool different amounts to purchase a specific property asset – such as this Rossmore/Badgerys Creek parcels of land – and share the increased capital value of such asset over time in proportion to the amount invested.
Investment in Rossmore/Badgerys Creek land banking opportunity through the DomaCom Fund will be unitized and ‘housed’ in a sub-fund, allowing investors to purchase as many units as they possibly want or need.
