SAGICOR Real Estate X Fund earned $940 million in just two months.
The net profit reported for the period November 1 to December 31, 2013, was entirely due to the change in the market value of the units it purchased in the Sigma Real Estate portfolio a little under a month after going public.
Operating expenses for the two-month period was $100,000, which was paid over for professional expenses. The company incurred $1,000 in tax.
The X Fund pays a one per cent income tax rate because of an allowance given by the CARICOM Treaty, which doesn’t subject the company registered in St Lucia to the one-third rate applicable in Jamaica.
