Following a prolonged period of economic uncertainty, the property investment market in London is prime for a positive turn. Serena Templeton discovers an alternative way to utilise the property market to generate returns from CapitalRise

Property in golden postcode districts such as Mayfair, Belgravia and Knightbridge is amongst the most sought-after in the world.

Seeped in history, heritage and opulence, Prime Central London continues to be, ‘home’ to a wealthy, successful global buyer demographic and it’s clear to see why.

Since records began in 1979, during property downturns, the Prime Central London market has fallen to a lesser extent and made a faster recovery than other sub-sectors of the UK market. This arguably makes now a prime time to invest, as the market is close to its lowest point.

Purchasing in the £10m+ bracket can however, be a time-consuming process, requiring a hands-on-approach, not to mention considerable financial reserves with close to £1m payable in stamp duty. There is, however, an alternative way to manage the investment process and secure solid returns in a shorter timeframe. This also includes the added incentive of exemption from stamp duty.

How can this be achieved? By diversifying investment through an investment platform that offers attractive risk adjusted returns. With fixed rates of projected interest and short time periods on average between 1-2 years; as a portfolio investor - you’re in complete control. Existing investors in this segment are also currently enjoying average returns in the region of 10% per annum.

One specialist firm that offers prime and super-prime portfolio investment is CapitalRise. With collectively more than 100 years of direct real estate development and investment expertise, this award-winning online platform fills the gap between traditional lending institutions, (many of whom have retreated from the market due to regulatory changes) and developers seeking alternative financing options.

“We offer a new way for investors to access prime real estate,” explains Uma Rajah, CEO of CapitalRise. All CapitalRise investors benefit from securing a legal charge over their property investment, further secured by average loan to value (LTV) with investment opportunities of 66%. In real terms, this means the anticipated sales value of that property at exit would have to fall 34% for any investor capital or accrued returns to be at risk.

“Even in the worst property downturn London has ever experienced – this ‘drop-off’ level is unprecedented,” Uma adds. The company has funded developments across some of London’s most prestigious addresses, including Eaton Square in Belgravia, Grosvenor Square in Mayfair and Yeoman’s Row in Knightsbridge, with close to £3m repaid to members over the past eight months alone.

CapitalRise investments are exclusively for their members. A free sign-up service, there are no fees associated with investing. To find out more visit www.capitalrise.com or call +44 (0) 203 869 262
