Following the UK’s decision to leave the European Union, BrickVest, the London based online real estate investment platform, has announced the launch of three new pan-European income-producing investment opportunities that it believes will be highly attractive and able to withstand market uncertainty by offering solid annual yields in a low interest rate environment.
Since the Brexit vote, according to a survey conducted by BrickVest, there has been a shift in investor sentiment towards lower risk opportunities that offer income yield. BrickVest allows investors to invest as little as EUR 1,000 in institutional quality real estate that previously was only accessible to large institutions such as pension funds, insurance companies and large family offices.
Since a successful launch earlier this year, BrickVest is significantly scaling up its platform and has a pipeline of £50 million of institutional quality real estate investment opportunities globally.
On the platform, newly opened pipeline includes an opportunity with M7 Real Estate, the specialist investor and asset manager of multi-let real estate, to invest in a pan-European portfolio of high yielding assets in Germany, Netherlands, France and the Nordics. After a successful fundraise earlier this year with Corestate Capital Group on a sizeable German retail portfolio, BrickVest is launching the next German high street retail portfolio in the same series.
The third investment provides BrickVest users with the opportunity to access a student housing portfolio acquired and managed by an experienced UK investment manager. BrickVest users will be able to access an investment that benefits from a sector that continues to perform well with constant demand, a steady predictable income stream and that tends to outperform the traditional buy-to-let sector.
Emmanuel Lumineau, CEO at BrickVest, commented: “In light of Brexit and when income is the key priority to a lot of our investors, BrickVest prefers investments that provide strong diversification and increased stability throughout their hold period. Since Brexit, we also have seen demand pick-up for UK real estate from continental European investors who are looking to gain from the weak British pound.”
BrickVest offers the full spectrum of investment management services: from complete deal underwriting and structuring to investment management, rating and monitoring. With innovative technology BrickVest has been able unlock the ability to combine unparalleled ease of access and transparency while providing an institutional-level investment platform.
