Turning the market on its head
Our goal is to work with the fundamentals of property. Long term wealth generation through the focus on driving income.
We recognise that many investment products in the sector have not generated the returns to the Investors that the quality underlying real estate delivers; so we have turned this on its head.
Rather than the creation of large, purpose-built blocks and pods, the US model is to invest in smaller properties offering strong projectable income. This helps to significantly reduce risk; as they can be easily adapted for alternative markets if required, plus are also much more liquid. We specialise in freehold assets that have risk protected value and multiple sales strategies – giving you comfort.
