Welcome to the Uniting Church Investment Fund (UCIF).
The UCIF has been operating for 49 years and is designed for investors who desire to promote the charitable purposes of the Uniting Church.
UCIF offers a range of investment and loan terms, designed to meet the needs of our employees, Uniting Church congregations, presbyteries, schools and agencies.
All investments with the UCIF are held under the Uniting Church in Australia Property Trust (WA), which is the body corporate incorporated by statute for the Western Australian Synod of the Uniting Church in Australia. Investments are managed by a committee appointed by the Synod, or by an investment manager the committee appoints.
Our mission is to generate great returns for our investors and our church by providing competitive interest rates, personal service and excellent investment security.
Ultimately, we exist to promote the work of the Uniting Church Western Australia and our customers are essential to making that happen.
UCIF is managed by a committee of professional people who are well-versed in financial matters, especially financial investment, economics and real estate.
Investments are not secured by a government guarantee; however, repayment of investments is due from the Uniting Church in Australia Property Trust (WA), which owns the assets of the Western Australian Synod.
You should be made aware that some of the regulatory and prudential protections for investors being the benefit of the financial claims scheme or the depositor protection provisions in the Banking Act 1959 do not apply to the UCIF.
