If you have at least £100,000 in liquid funds the Property Connections service provided by the Beaufort Society can introduce you to our small group of approved property developers looking for equity partners. You become a shareholder in the SPV, share the profits of the project and choose how actively involved you want to be at an operational level.
It’s no surprise that one of the most popular asset classes for the wealthy is real estate. The vast majority of our members have a property portfolio of some sort but a significant minority want to take things further by becoming directly involved in property development projects.
Our Property Connections service is designed to fulfil this need for liquid investors with a minimum of £100,000 to deploy. Headed up by our Property Director Paul Kingston this is the way Property Connections works:
Its a 'quality before quantity' approach driven by our property director Paul Kingston:
The approach can work in one of two ways – you can be an armchair investor who leaves all the work to the team or you can become actively involved and treat the project as a learning exercise before perhaps embarking on developments of your own. (As ever, we cannot give investment advice so you must bring in any experts you need in order to satisfy yourself that you want to proceed.)
It all starts by becoming a Full Member of the Beaufort Society so click here then, when you complete your application, make sure to mention that you would like more information about Property Connections and we will put you in direct contact with Paul Kingston.
"Paul went to great lengths to make sure that the shareholder agreement gave me as many protections as possible and educated the developer on why some changes were needed now that he was working with an equity partner. In a nutshell, I provide the equity on top of the development loan, the developer does all the work and we split the profits down the middle.I’ve been really pleased to see Paul continuing to be involved in the project, visiting the site every month and sending me video updates."
"I found myself on a building site south of Manchester looking at one of the Property Connections projects. I had a careful look at the appraisal, made sure the shareholder agreement was in order and that the potential sale prices were achievable.
But for me it’s about more than just the numbers. I’ve got to be comfortable with the people. Both Paul and the developer Shiro impressed me with their approach and their track record, so I was happy to provide a percentage of the equity that the project needed, in three stages ,as the work progresses."
