Property Investment

Strategic opportunities in the UAE and the UK to strengthen your property portfolio.

Hands-on help with property investment

We can help private investors with property investment in the UK and UAE through the significant contacts we have forged in 18 years of business. Our advisers are well-placed to provide you with a range of investment opportunities, as well as being highly-experienced and happy to walk you through negotiating a contract from start to finish.

Property investment can centre on any type of building from your first, or next, house to an empty plot of land to commercial property. Investment can be exclusive to you, or as part of a wider scheme.

If you are investing alone, then the usual vehicle employed is that of a mortgage. Naturally, different mortgage rules and conditions apply based on the planned use of the property, whether it is commercial or residential, or a mixture of both in the case of buy-to-let properties. The mortgage markets in the UK and UAE are very different so expert advice is essential.

Professional advice is a phone call away with a Holborn Assets adviser. In the meantime why not browse a few of our blog articles in which we consider whether you should invest in UK property vs UK stocks; resident mortgages guru Jo Philips gives some elite tips for buying property in the UK; and what about the UAE property market in 2018?

Benefits of property investment

  • The property market can be more stable than most, particularly where yields are concerned, so investment property generates stable returns to investors.
  • If you purchase the property in the right location, the property value should increase over time and you can generate more profit.
  • There may be tax implications with property ownership, either annually or on disposal and we will give you the advice you require to manage your property assets in the optimum way.

3 reasons to work with Holborn for your investments

  • In it for the long haul

    We view all our services and products together as part of a planning pyramid. It works simply; the higher up the pyramid, the longer-term the product. We see the most robust investments at the top of the pyramid i.e. as part of your most long-term strategy. Just as you commit to financial planning goals that will last a lifetime, we will support you and your family from cradle to grave.

  • Prudence first, performance first

    We don’t see a contradiction between a careful investment and a successful investment. Quite the contrary. If robust investment decisions are made in the holistic context of your unique financial scenario, good yields do not need to come at the cost of crazy risks.

  • Committed communicators

    Your existing investments need regular monitoring and we also look for new opportunities that may suit your needs. We have what we call a 'communication circle' and put you at the heart of it. This is our culture and it underpins both trust and transparency.
