It is a well-known fact that, over the long term, no other investment vehicle offers the same benefits as investing in property when it comes to building a solid base for your personal wealth-and there couldn’t be a better time to invest in property than right now. Property is safer and less risky than the equities market Since 2000, the UK property market has outperformed the equities market by quite a significant level. For each £100,000 invested in the property market, a 132% return has been generated in comparison to an 83% return from the stock market.
However, the 83% return from the equities market has relied on the dividends being reinvested and let’s not forget that this 83% return has been generated by the FTSE 100 and many investors wouldn’t have invested in each and every one of the shares that performed well. The bottom line is that the equities market is far more speculative and the habit that investors have of buying the wrong shares at the wrong time, selling low or too early or holding on for a profit that is never reached adds to the volatility of buying shares.
With the average ISA rate falling to a measly 1.02%, many smart investors are turning to bricks and mortar in order to make money in a safe, stable and asset backed market. The UK population has increased by 7% in the past ten years and is predicted to continue to reach a staggering 70 million by 2027. As the most heavily populated country in Europe, Britain is home to a hugely diverse range of people with one thing in common- we all need somewhere to call home. With housing supplies currently unable to meet these increasing demands (the lowest supply for 100 years) it’s easy to see why Investing in property is now one of the most popular areas for people looking to put their cash to work.
And it’s not just about buying houses, either. Those in the know are converting commercial properties into HMOs and buying land to develop commercial dwellings- both highly lucrative and exciting opportunities for investment.
As they say, hindsight is a wonderful thing, so why not ask your parents (or even better, grandparents!) how much they paid for the family home, how much it’s worth now- and given the chance to do it all again, would they have bought more? Wouldn’t it be great if years from now, you’re telling your grandchildren how you achieved financial freedom? Working in partnership with Assets for Life can make this dream a reality, and we’d love it if you’d join us on our journey.
The team at Assets for Life believe in giving back to the community and regularly take part in fundraising events. Here are our favourite charities, all of which are close to our hearts and do a fantastic job to help people in need.

“Fundación Renacer” Santa clara, Popayan, Cauca, Colombia.
Born in Colombia, Jay holds this charity close to his heart because of their commitment to helping the country’s poorest children escape poverty. The foundation work with families, individuals and communities throughout Colombia, running educational programmes and promoting social change.
The Thames Hospice is run by a dedicated team of professional doctors, nurses and volunteers supporting patients at the end of their lives. The organisation provides exceptional standards of care and dignity, and is especially close to Liam as they looked after his Dad at the end of his battle from cancer.
St Francis Hospice
Saint Frances Hospice is one of the largest adult hospices in the UK, supporting patients and their families through serious illnesses. Will became involved with the charity when his cousin sadly passed away from cancer.
The first Charity challenge the team will be taking part in this year is the 12km Nuclear Races event on Saturday May 14th.

Assets for Life provide three different investment strategies to maximise your ROI. All strategies are carefully considered based on your needs and designed to deal with market fluctuations, meaning no unnecessary risks are taken and you can sit back and relax while your money does all the hard work for you. Whichever strategy you choose, your money will be treated with the same respect as if it was our own.
An overview of our services:
This strategy will give you a guaranteed percentage return on your capital with a minimum time commitment of only one year. Designed to make your money work hard for you and producing excellent results year in year out, this is by far the most common and flexible strategy for you as an investor if you want to see quick results without a long term commitment. With interest rates low, the average ISA showing only 1.02%, inflation where it is and the stock market high and very risky, more and more investors are looking for something different and this is a very popular choice. Contact us today to find out how this strategy can work for you.
The average time frame for this option is 3-7 years and your ROI will be a combination of capital growth and rental yield. This strategy is a great choice for investors who want to have more involvement in the decision making process without having to do any of the hard work like refurbishments or unit rental. Our power team work with you to establish long term goals to build your own property portfolio, and the best thing is it’s all done for you while you sit back and relax in the comfort of your own home. AFL can build you a large portfolio using only an initial deposit and recycle it to buy multiple properties. Our team will undertake all the work from start to finish; sourcing the property, refurbishment, refinancing, rental and- when the time is right- the sale. Get in touch for further information on this great opportunity.
An overview of our services:
This option focuses on flips (purchase, refurb, resell), commercial conversions into multiple units and land development with a pre-determined exit of under two years. It generally generates larger portions of capital and helps to give your property portfolio a cash injection. This strategy is more popular with high net-worth individuals, business angels and company directors looking for great returns on their investment. These tend to be large, exciting projects requiring a higher level of investment capital but resulting in a large percentage return- so if you’re looking for a little excitement and the potential for a sizeable profit, this is a great choice. Contact us now to take advantage of this great opportunity.
