IPIN Global was originally created to help potential property investors identify opportunities suitable for investment purposes in both mature and emerging markets globally. Traditional agents typically offered high volumes of properties for sale, often all promoted as ideal investment opportunities - a generalisation we did not agree with.
We took a different approach, right from the start.
The first IPIN Global Member was registered in 2004 and from the start we took a different approach by offering a smaller number of well-researched opportunities. Offering only a limited number of opportunities ensured that IPIN Global had the resources to research the merits and feasibility of each opportunity thoroughly so that only the best propositions were offered to IPIN Global Members with the following benefits:
- Minimum risk legally and commercially
- Located in areas experiencing growth and infrastructural improvements
- High quality build standards
- Priced competitively with indications that continued growth and / or rental yields were probable based on actual local comparisons and activity.
Resources were utilised to survey rental agencies to gain an understanding of actual current rental rates, perform site visits and ensure that our advisors were able to speak intelligently and in-depth about each and every opportunity offered, something that our competitors offering high volumes of property for sale were simply unable to do.
Our aim was, and still is, to gain exclusivity and preferred terms for our Members.
As our membership grew we were able to use our buying power to gain exclusivity within selected projects and negotiate advantageous purchasing conditions for Members, which in turn helped to expand the IPIN Global membership exponentially.
IPIN Global quickly became a preferred representative for a number of vendors as it became known that we selected projects based on the investment benefits offered to Members and not commercial terms or existing business relationships. The IPIN policy of only offering a limited number of opportunities ensured that developers working with IPIN could rely on significant and sustained sales volume achieved through increased focus along with peace of mind that the IPIN Global team had a comprehensive first-hand understanding of their product.
Although at this IPIN Global was becoming a leader in its field and growing steadily, it was clear that in order to provide IPIN Members with further increased value IPIN needed to develop proprietary, investment strategies that offered investment terms (returns and risk profile) that significantly outperformed the market. IPIN actively met with various investment groups for a period of 2 years, discussing potential models that could be applied to selected projects and subsequently offered on an exclusive basis to IPIN Global Members
IPIN Global formed joint ventures to leverage the current economic climate.
In 2007 IPIN Global formed a working relationship with BridgePoint Ventures (BPV) based in Miami, USA. BPV had created and were operating proprietary real estate investment models that intelligently took advantage of the economic climate at the time and offered investors the ability to generate substantial returns from distressed US real estate. Another investment model provided equity to real estate developers in addition to pre-sale contracts facilitating senior debt finance during a period when traditional lending sources (banks) were unable to provide this and many projects were failing to be realised.
IPIN Global invited BPV to an IPIN seminar held in Lahore, Pakistan in 2008 and during this event discussed bringing the companies closer together with IPIN offering the BPV models exclusively to its Members as the Secure Exit Strategy (SES) and BPV providing the acquisition, due diligence and oversight of the SES projects.
IPIN Global Capital assumed direct responsibility for the acquisitions and associated functions from BPV in 2013 and continues to provide these services to the IPIN group today from its UK office in Mayfair, London.
IPIN Global now has more than 85,000 Members from around the world.
Today IPIN Global has over 85,000 Members and has successfully provided its proprietary investment strategies including the SES (Secure Exit Strategy™) to Members in all corners of the world. IPIN Members continue to receive tangible investment returns from these models in various geographic locations. In addition numerous real estate projects are now being constructed as a direct result of equity and pre-sale contracts provided by IPIN Global and our Members.
