Trilogy Funds is one of Australia’s leading fund managers and financiers of property-based investments.

When it comes to property-based investing, we take things personally.

We’ve been building wealth together with Australian investors, advisers, developers and brokers for 25 years. As we’ve grown, we’ve stayed faithful to the principles that have seen us build long-lasting relationships:

  • We respect the importance of every decision to invest with, borrow from or recommend us
  • Your goals drive how we find and share new investment, finance or development opportunities
  • Your experience with us is not a transaction, it’s the starting point of a fruitful and enduring relationship.

For us, Building wealth together means fostering tailored, personal interactions. It means delivering:

  • Better outcomes for investors
  • Better construction and development finance solutions
  • Better opportunities for our team and suppliers
  • Sustainable growth in the Australian property and investment sectors.

So, whoever you are and whatever your financial goals may be, we’re here to support you on this journey.

Foundations built on experience

Trilogy Funds’ origins can be traced back to 1998 when Philip Ryan, Trilogy Funds’ co-founder and current Managing Director, was partner in a law firm associated with a fund management company managing mortgages and property assets. Philip recognised the potential the sector provided for investment and income and sought opportunities to create a standalone business. 

In 2004, Philip met Rodger Bacon and John Barry, who both had decades of success in the financial sector and were instrumental in the growth and subsequent sale of Challenger Limited. Philip, Rodger, and John decided to combine their experience and joint passion for property and managed funds to create what is now Trilogy Funds. 

All three co-founders are still active at Trilogy Funds – Philip as Managing Director , Rodger as Executive Deputy Chairman and John as Executive Director.

Today, Trilogy Funds has more than 50 team members with broad experience across investment products, property acquisition, management and development, loan and portfolio management, investor relations, treasury, marketing, finance, operations and human resources.  

Our teams are based in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.
