It is a myth that growth is the only genuine return offered by property. Invested wisely, property can also provide a good income. Pension funds, hedge funds, banks and other large institutions have utilised property as a core part of their income plan for many years. Additionally, property based funds are non-correlated – a further key benefit, providing institutions with an alternative to stocks and shares (as detailed later in the guide).
At IPS, we have developed a property investment strategy – the R.E.S.T. Assured Invest for Income plan – based on four fundamental property investment principles:
At IPS Invest, we constantly scrutinise the returns offered by every investment, targeting a minimum return of 8% p.a., before they enter our portfolio. Each investment has a high level of security and once we are satisfied with the way the return is generated, we ask:
1. Is the return fixed or variable? 90% of our investments are fixed!
a. Type of return
i) Growth or income?
ii) Share or fixed interest?
b. What is the frequency of return
i) Quarterly, bi-annually or annually
ii) A growth option that includes an investment bonus for deferring the income until the end of the term
