ING Industrial Fund plans to raise up to A$700 million ($641 million) in a fully underwritten rights issue of new shares, a source familiar with the transaction said on Tuesday.

The property trust's shares were put on a trading halt pending an announcement on capital management initiatives, which it expects to make before the market opens on Thursday.

Its shares last traded at A$0.60, valuing the group at A$680 million.
