GSFM has partnered with Australian Entertainment Partners to launch the AEP Screen Fund.
The Fund will invest in film and television projects made in Australia, and is structured so that it has no material exposure to box office or other audience related factors. Producers, studios and streamers will be supported through the financing of these productions and having access to industry insider oversight.
AEP was established in 2022 and comprises a management team with over 100 years of production, management and finance experience in the global screen industry. AEP is based in Melbourne and has a representative office in Los Angeles, in the United States.
GSFM Screen Investments Pty Ltd will be the fund’s trustee and GSFM will also be responsible for the distribution and back office administration of the fund.
GSFM CEO, Damien McIntyre, says the AEP Screen Fund provides access to an attractive, alternative asset class while also supporting the Australian film and television industry.
“GSFM’s goal is to partner with high calibre investment managers to deliver differentiated, quality investment capabilities. We actively seek out innovative and diverse investment strategies to offer Australian investors.
