Is the turnaround now truly underway?

June 3, 2011Article by Ray Withers

As we head towards the close of the first half of 2011 I can say with confidence, based on our own successes, that yes, the turnaround is now truly underway.

The pain of the last few years of recession seems to be easing somewhat with more and more clients confident to invest not only in domestic property but also in overseas markets and alternative investments.

Our bamboo alternative opportunity has proved particularly popular with investors seeking an eco-friendly and sustainable investment with high returns. The seminar we held in London last month was packed with numerous reservations taken on the night and even more in the following weeks. Due to high demand we are busy planning more seminars for the coming months, keep checking back for more details. We have also received some very positive feedback from existing investors Geoff Chew and Guy Wilkinson who were keen to share their experiences.

I am also delighted with the response we have had to our latest student accommodation project, Hatton Garden. Having visited the site personally I can vouch for its prime location in the heart of Liverpool, just minutes from all the amenities today’s students desire. Many clients who invested in our previous student accommodation projects in Liverpool from our same developer partner and who are already receiving returns have reinvested in Hatton Garden which is testament to the sheer quality of this development.

And so with the sun shining and the weekend beckoning, let’s not rest on our laurels but actively seize the opportunities for successful investment which are clearly out there!
