To achieve high annuity revenues and/or capital growth via leveraged investments in mispriced residential real estate (distressed sales).
There are two parallel strategies:
“Buy to Let” (long-term hold) or
“Buy to Sell” (refurbish for resale).
High annuity revenues, utilising leverage, with a second charge over underlying “bricks and mortar”.
High short-term returns, utilising leverage to boost investment performance, with a second charge over underlying assets.
Each approach represents a “second way out” (i.e. an alternative exit strategy).
Objective: To create a diversified, high-yield portfolio of affordable urban residential units, with potential capital appreciation via planning gain, refurbishment, urban regeneration and improvements to public transport infrastructure.
Target: To acquire 25 units within 3 years, utilising high LTV, cost-efficient "Bridge-to-Term" mortgage finance. Refinancing post-refurbishment permits equity release, which, together with net rental income and fresh injections of capital, is reinvested in upcoming projects.

The world is experiencing unprecedented geo-political risk: trade wars, climate change, pandemics, populism, yield curve inversion, impending economic recession, foreign interference in national elections, fake news, flashpoints in Middle-East/North Korea, terrorism, etc.
Affordable residential urban real estate is one of few remaining “safe havens” especially in an area of high employment, a liberal democracy, with a reliable legal system which enforces property rights. There is a robust demand for “affordable” housing in South East England, especially from young sharers – homes for multiple occupation (‘HMOs’, ie 4-10 bedroom properties).
Urban real estate has consistently outperformed other asset classes over any 5+ year period.
Urbanizing, ageing population. Millennials seeking work-life balance, with co-habitation the “new normal”.
Emphasis on flexible living, convenience, lifestyle (shops, health clubs, bars, restaurants). Environmental concerns (public transport), Community living, delaying purchase decision.
We focus on Greater London and surrounding commuter belt, with emphasis on efficient public transport links e.g. Crossrail, Underground.
Real estate is a victim of Brexit uncertainty. It appears 'oversold’, offering exceptional value, given access to cost-efficient finance. We seek “distressed”/ mispriced (ie undervalued) properties permitting multiple occupancy (“HMO’s”), with scope for improvement/planning gain (capital appreciation), in "gentrifying" neighbourhoods with good transport links.
