Article | March 3, 2020

Real estate syndication, also referred to as real estate crowdfunding, is an investment model where multiple real estate investors pool their capital for the common objective of financing a property investment. This way, real estate investors can invest in real estate projects that are considerably larger than they could have afforded as individual investors. Real estate syndications are usually led by a sponsor (or syndicate) who oversees the financing, acquisition, and management of investment properties on behalf of the investors.

What Property Investors Need to Know About Sustainable And Impact Investing

Article | May 31, 2021

There’s no escaping the importance of sustainability in any investment sector. Globally, Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) investing is worth $30 trillion in assets under management each year, around a quarter of all professionally-managed assets. It is more relevant than ever as the ‘high impact, low probability’ shock imposed by Covid-19 has strengthened the case for prioritising people and planet alongside profits, and illustrated the power of collective action to tackle global problems. Many investors are unaware how significant this trend will be. If you are an investor, you need to consider why sustainability will be important, what sustainable property investing actually means, and what the major issues and opportunities are, as these will affect your risks and returns. Why is sustainability so important for investors? The UK’s legally-binding commitment to achieve net carbon zero by 2050 means that sustainability is no longer a ‘nice to have’. Our legal obligation is showing up in the form of new rules, regulations and best practices affecting all sectors that contribute to emissions. 40 per cent of UK emissions come from households, which makes the chance of more regulations and policies around the environmental performance of property more likely than not. These regulations will not only affect your ability to operate in a way that is compliant, but fundamentally change the value, performance and risk associated with your investments.
