The beginnings of
Brickowner was founded with the intention of making the best property investments, managed by the best property asset managers, available to all with as little as £100.
Brickowner was founded to solve problems which we as individuals experienced ourselves. We found it hard to locate the best property investments managed by the best property asset managers. Then even when suitable property investments were found, in order to invest there would be a requirement to invest a significant sum, and you would then be locked into the investment for a number of years with no obvious way of selling your investment early. Brickowner was created to solve all these problems.
Brickowner aims to provide you with the best property investment opportunities
Brickowner aims to provide you with the ability to invest in the best property investment opportunities, managed by the best property asset managers. This is achieved by Brickowner acting as an aggregator, so when a number of investors come together to invest in a property through the Brickowner platform, the total investment sum combined becomes a large enough combined sum to invest in the property investment.
Brickowner as a concept is formed
The seed of what was to become Brickowner was planted in April 2015. By the Autumn of 2015 we had formed the core team, and honed our business plan. We raised our first seed round for Brickowner via crowdfunding platform Seedrs, believing that the best way to build our own crowdfunding platform was to have a large number of people owning the business themselves.
You will earn a share of any monthly rental income from your properties, proportional to the amount you invested in that particular property. You can either reinvest this income into new properties, or withdraw it. It’s your money, so it’s up to you.
Brickowner now and the future
2017 began with Brickowner successfully completing the funding of our first investment, Abbeygate, with 45 new investors. During 2017 we aim to offer a variety of investment opportunities as we increase the property asset manager partners we work with.
We create a new opportunity for investors, giving people access to property investments they wouldn’t otherwise be able to invest in.
At Brickowner we believe your investments should be helping you achieve your life goals, whether its saving for a first home, or for retirement. At Brickowner, we aim to help you do this.
