A preference for high yielding investments

Income returns dominate total returns in the long term.

Flexible buyers rather than buyers of 'trophy' assets

‘Trophy’ investments at the keenest yields are very demanding on consistent rental value growth and therefore tend to underperform.

Active property management is integral

Intensive asset management of individual property investments creates and protects value and income.

Emphasis on stock picking

Good stock picking is an essential part of strategy implementation.

Avoid speculative development

High risk activity. We prefer standing investments, and refurbishments are undertaken as a low risk method of enhancing latent value.
