Q. Does my money go through ILAP ?
A. No. We don’t handle any client money. All investors, including ourselves, will invest directly with the developer. We will ensure that all investor monies are transferred into, and held with, a client account at an independent solicitors firm. We devise strict rules around how and when the developer can access these funds. Normally, investors (or their representatives) would be required to authorise any use of funds.
Q. How does it work?
A. We assess investment opportunities in property developments all the time, the vast majority of which we dismiss because they don’t meet our strict professional-grade DD criteria.
A handful make it through and pass our DD.
We then produce a comprehensive report to detail the investment case, expected returns, major risks, investor exit, alternative exits, financial projections etc. You then read the report and make a decision to invest. Each investment opportunity has its own asset allocation category so you will know if that particular opportunity is right for your own portfolio.
At ILAP, our focus is entirely on the investor which is why we only select the best deals. We invest into most of the opportunities ourselves, so you can be assured that our interests are aligned with all other investors.
Q. Do I have to invest in all the opportunities you send over?
A. Not at all. You are free to pick and choose whichever investments you wish to. We will send over reports of opportunities that pass our strict criteria and this report will contain all relevant information including expected returns, major risks, appropriate DD and financial information. You can read this through and decide not to invest – we won’t be offended!
Q. What do I get for my subscription?
A. Both subscription options given you access to regular, live investment opportunities as well as a balanced portfolio that helps make your investments safer.
Our Premium option includes a quarterly call with Manish to assess your investments and your overall strategy, alongside an annual strategy and market analysis day where you will receive talks and information from industry professionals.
Q. Am I tied in to the service?
A. No, there is no minimum contract. You can leave anytime without any tie-in.
Q: Where are the investment opportunities sourced from?
A. A combination of private networks and selected crowdfunding platforms. Regardless of the source, all our developers and projects go through the same rigorous professional-grade DD process.
Q. What is the minimum amounts that can be invested?
A. For opportunities that come about through our private networks, the minimum amount typically starts from £10k. Investments on crowdfunding platforms usually have a smaller minimum investment starting from £100.
