Meet the Developer

Our latest Development Partner is the London Office of Grace Charles Property ran by Ben Butkus and Raouf Belmouloud. We met with them to find out more about their story and to discuss what attracted them to the project on Braintree High Street:

Crowdfunding and P2P Lending - Vive La Différence!

How do you choose an investment
As most people are new to Property Crowdfunding we thought it useful to highlight the differences to help you decide which investment, or even which combination best suits your situation and your risk appetite.  

We’re also launching our latest investment, a mixed use conversion on Braintree High Street which offers either a 2nd Charge Debt option offering with target fixed returns of 16% p.a.* or  an Interim Equity investment offering target fixed returns of 22% p.a.* .

How do you decide which investment is best for you?
It’s not unusual for Investors to ask us which investment they should choose. But, since we’re not allowed to give advice, it’s a very difficult question to answer because everybody’s personal situation; including the reason they are investing and their attitude to risk; is different.
The differences between Interim Equity and Full Equity
We recognised that many of our investors were new to the idea of buying shares in SPVs and were put off by the idea that the exit date and the actual returns may be different to what they expected. So we developed a product we call Interim Equity – buying shares in the SPV for a fixed period and with a fixed return. We facilitate this by using Preferred Redeemable Shares as opposed to Preferred Ordinary Shares.
