The platform provides investors with transparent access to all of the tools and information required to review, evaluate and invest in building projects that have a social impact.
Every social property investment undergoes a thorough and systematic due diligence process, prior to being listed.
To reduce risk to the investor, the engagement process, with any new property – irrespective of whether it is being offered by a new or existing partner – is to ensure that the property meets the criteria of the platform’s investment guide. The due diligence framework utilised is similar to the guidelines used by mortgage companies in determining whether a property is mortgageable. This objective assessment ensures potential offerings meet the minimum standards, in terms of property and construction type, lease length (if applicable), and legal structure.
A fundamental part of our model precludes our partners from launching their offering without approval; as there may be instances when a potential opportunity is rejected, this approach ensures listings are engaging, information rich and contain all relevant information.
Properties are then subject to a further rigorous 6-step screening process, whereby the financials (valuation, rental income, operating expenses) are verified to ensure that the proposed opportunity offers genuine value, to investors, representing a viable investment prospect.
As a regulated firm, there is a responsibility to ensure that the nature and risks of an investment, and any information supplied, is fair, clear, and in no way misleading.
Ultimately, it is the company’s remit to disclose relevant, accurate information – such as key expenditure – and to ensure investors are not led to believe they will receive returns that are unrealistic. To this end, a full project cost, income and capital growth analysis is provided for each project, together with detailed information relating to the location, management, investment, and exit strategy.
