My first impression of IPIN was being struck by the courtesy and understanding of the IPIN staff. Something which I thought was reminiscent of a bygone era. IPIN were very professional in the management of my investment.

When I first read about the Secure Exit Strategy, I thought the 25% return too good to be true, but IPIN have proved me wrong, as, I invested in The Flaxby Secure Exit Strategy in October 2009 and exited in June 2010, 9 months later with a whopping 48% return.

People at IPIN are not pushy, they are friendly, patient, helpful and easy to reach during and after business hours, when it suits me best. This is what I expect from an advisor. I am planning to further expand my portfolio based on the results achieved by the IPIN team.

As we approach retirement conservative and secure investment programs are the only ones we considered. The IPIN SES program fits our investment goals perfectly and has performed as advertised. Who can argue with a 26% annualised return in the current economic environment?

There were two main aspects that attracted us to this investment; the strength of the commercial proposition itself (the product was eminently marketable) and the extensive security provided by the escrow and other associated legal arrangements.

After almost two years of working with IPIN, I am convinced this is one of the best wealth-building investment vehicles available.

Docklands is the second successful SES unit I've bought-into. For me, this still represents the best thing I can do with my money - not only is it secure, but the returns are guaranteed too. Another thing I really like is how the projects to which IPIN apply the SES always seem to be really sound - they're not just good SES investments, they always have a lot going for them as traditional investments.


Mr. M. Green

I invested in the Secure Exit Strategy (SES) as an addition to my existing property portfolio. I was very surprised when told that I had been exited within just over 6 months.  I was extremely happy with the returns I made and decided to reinvest those returns with IPIN.


Mr Robert D
IPIN member and investor

As the first of my investments with IPIN, I was keen to see an early result on one of my units even though I understood I should be prepared for the maximum 36 month term.  I was delighted when I received a call to tell me that the first of my units had exited in less than 3 months.


Mr J Donald
IPIN member and investor

I invested on September 21st 2009 after some searching questions. I have been kept informed of progress over the whole period and on February 25th 2010 my unit was sold.  The strategy has worked extremely well for me and I elected to reinvest into another SES venture using 1,013 GBP of the return plus the original investment.

buy to let investment

Securing a buy to let investment is still one of the most popular ways to generate an income as well as diversify an asset portfolio. But due to the turbulent economic times of late, many would-be buyers are asking themselves whether buy to let investments are as good an idea as they used to be, before jumping straight in.

Unfortunately, many who bought property during the boom years have struggled since mortgage rates have risen but now it seems that the plummet in house prices, the increase in rents and the choice of new mortgage deals is slowly luring investors back into the buy to let property investment market. The difference these days however, is they will need a much more sizeable deposit in order to do so.

According to UK newspaper, The Guardian, recent statistics from Moneyfacts, Britain’s biggest property valuers, have shown that lenders have cut their fixed rate mortgages to record lows. However, only existing homeowners with large amounts of equity are benefitting from this. Despite the cuts, loans are being declined to anyone on a low or medium income as banks are becoming more careful about who they lend to.

But even if your finances are looking healthy, it’s a good idea to be cautious. Before you sign on the dotted line, consult a buy to let investment calculator and bear in mind that just because property prices are currently on the up, it doesn’t mean they can’t fall back down at any time. Therefore this type of investment cannot be used a ‘get rich quick scheme’.

At present, your buy to let return on investment may be high, mainly due to the fact that many first time buyers are unable to obtain loans to secure a property investment. Buy to let property is currently out of reach for many but one way to avoid disappointment if you have your heart set on entering into the market is to use low leverage on the investment. Buy to let landlords however, will be pleased to know that the tight credit and high prices will mean that more people will be forced to rent rather than buy.

If you plan to opt for hands off approach to buy to let investing, be aware of the costs that using a management company will incur. While they will find tenants, chase rents, maintain and sort out any problems with your property, they will probably charge you 10 – 15% of your overall monthly income for these services. It is also wise to check whether or not they will charge you for insurance on the property and letting it. Make sure you go through all documents from your management company with a fine-toothed comb.
