IPIN Global was originally created to help potential investors identify real estate 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 have taken a different approach from the start.
The first IPIN member was registered in 2004 and from the start we took a different approach by offering a smaller number of well-researched opportunities, each with independent due diligence reports commissioned by reputable law firms to ensure that every investment opportunity offered to members:
- represented minimum risk legally
- was located in areas experiencing growth and infrastructural improvements
- met high quality standards and
- was priced competitively with indications that continued growth was probable based on actual local comparisons and activity.
By focusing on fewer opportunities we were able to commit resources to areas that were simply not commercially viable to other real estate companies.
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 in-depth about each and every opportunity offered.
Our aim was, and continues to be, to gain exclusivity for our members.
As our membership grew we were able to use our buying power to gain exclusivity within projects and negotiate advantageous purchasing conditions for members, which in turn helped to expand the IPIN membership exponentially.
IPIN Global became a preferred representative as it became known that we selected projects based on the investment benefits offered to members and not commercial terms or existing business relationships. When we selected a developer's project the developer could rely on sales volume achieved through focus along with peace of mind that the IPIN Global team had a comprehensive understanding of their product.
Although at this point we were becoming a leader in our field and growing steadily, it was clear that in order to provide our members with increased value we needed to develop proprietary, exclusive investment models. We actively met with various investment groups for a period of 2 years, discussing potential models that could be applied to selected products and that offered exclusively to IPIN members.
We formed joint ventures to benefit from the negative 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 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.
We now have 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.
