Investing Strategies

In terms of Fraser’s personal investing strategy – he’s finished! He has a portfolio of over 100 properties and now simply wants to clear the mortgages on them.

Having said that, he is now working with Gavin Barry and Ed Fowkes on a new venture called Prosperity Capital Partners, where he is working on development deals in high re-sale areas (London and the South East), looking specifically at alternative investments such as student developments, build-to-rents, healthcare developments etc. starting with a 350 room student development!

Biggest Success

During the Mortgage Express days of same day refinancing, Fraser remembers being able to buy 40 houses in 1 day and get £100,000 back out at the same time.

Biggest Difficulty

Surviving the recession was a particularly proud moment for Fraser, being able to trade through it was a few clients speculating on the property market, becoming an Energy Assessor to cover the mortgage, and then being well positioned as a result of hanging on when the market started to pick up again.
