The product is designed as a customer acquisition strategy towards growing Bersama Coop’s membership base and meeting financial goals. It is a structured savings plan for parents or legal guardians of children and teenagers from 0-18 years, towards specifically co-investing in/co-owning real estate assets on behalf of their children before their 18th birthday.
The Cooperative is positioned to invest in high yielding real estate assets on behalf of its members, who benefit annually through surplus payouts and/or eventual capital gains from the disposal of such properties. The ownership right of the properties purchased directly through the Cooperative is vested in the children/teens, but administered by their parents until they are above 18 years and can enter into contract
