Dubai-based financial advisory group Holborn Assets has unveiled a real estate investment arm to its global operations.

Clients will be able to invest into three areas including off-the-plan property, completed property and London property. The investments will look to earn returns from capital gains and rental income.

Andrew Pigott, operations head of Holborn Assets property division said: “Our bespoke service is designed with the client in mind.

“The properties we offer are carefully selected by our in-house experts to bring exciting investment opportunities to clients in the UK and abroad.

“Having a UK based operation that works closely with renowned developers and solicitors means we can offer an unparalleled level of service and due diligence – that’s what sets us apart from our competitors.”

Areas of focus

Currently the firm is looking at property in the north west of England and the Midlands.

“House prices in the north west increased faster than anywhere else in the UK last year and projections from Savills suggest this is a trend we can expect to continue.” said Tareq Samaha, global property sales manager at Holborn Assets.

According to the UK’s Office for National Statistics (ONS), property value in the north west has increased by 4% over 12 months, followed by 2.9% and 1.6% in the West and East Midlands, respectively.

Robert Parker, chief executive of Holborn Assets added: “The UK remains a very attractive market for investors, especially those offshore who benefit from the weak sterling caused by Brexit uncertainty.”
