"I have found this investment good and worthwhile as it gives good return and also pays monthly which is very good in these days of inflation and financial turbulence "

Mr K S
IPIN Member & Development Funding Investor

I first got to know IPIN Global at a seminar they conducted in their office. Then I met them for a deeper understanding of how they work on a separate meeting. Truly, I was impressed by their investment structure they have put in place to protect the investors FIRST. This in my opinion is an Investor-First company. I have no questions to refer IPINglobal to any individual who are looking for a safe and secure investment opportunity. Keep it up, IPIN Global.

Victor Ang
IPIN Member and seminar attendee

IPIN Global provide the best service we have come across so far with regards to property investment. So far the risk/rewards is very good and the payments are all on time.

Mr Teo
IPIN Member and investor

I am very happy, this is the first investment with IPIN and I hope to invest more soon.

Mr Vinay Chugh
IPIN Member and investor

I have invested in the Newman Residential opportunity through IPIN. I can see the interest being accrued in my IPIN Portfolio on my web account; although I have yet to receive the payout which based on my choice will be upon the maturity of the tenure. The relationship managers and sales personnel at IPIN are all friendly and more importantly knowledgeable about the products, and are happy to have a no-obligation chat with you as a potential investor. At no point did I feel pressured to sign on the dotted line, and all questions were duly answered in a prompt fashion.

Mr Samtaney
IPIN Member and investor

It is a pleasure working with great professionals like Mark Wilson & team. The investment process was extremely easy and the opportunity itself great!

Mr K
IPIN Member and investor

I entered IPIN Newman project this year. I have to say IPIN staff have been very helpful and professional, furthermore the process fast and clear. All terms of the agreement have been punctually respected. I would say it is the kind of investment I was looking for and I thank IPIN for it.

Mr Zannetti
IPIN Member and investor

From my own experience IPIN Global seems to be a well-run organization with capable staff. When appointments have been made to make contact this scheduling was adhered to and the staff were informative and polite throughout. I have already recommended IPIN to associates of mine and look forward to the Company's future projects!

Mr Goldblatt
IPIN Member and investor

I found IPIN staff very responsive and helpful, answering all my questions promptly and thoroughly. They were not at all pushy and that created a trusting atmosphere. I am delighted to say that I recently have had my first exit. The returns were exactly as forecast and I am now looking to recycle the funds into the next project and looking forward to other exits.

Mr Masood
IPIN Member and investor

This was my first termination of an IPIN investment and I was very pleased to see that everything worked exactly as planned. My money was returned exactly when promised. It was opportune to reinvest the funds in another IPIN project in London and I was happy to do so. Again, everything worked as planned - very professional, very helpful and no sales pressure.

Mr Oswell
IPIN Member and investor

This is an excellent investment opportunity with very interesting returns and the IPIN Team provides clear, transparent and comprehensive support during all stages of your investment...

Mr Roberto
IPIN Member and investor

I was confident in the investment and more than pleased by the attentive staff who had a open attitude to any concerns I had, they were never impatient with the level of queries I made, in all a good experience...I have rolled over in to another investment with IPIN Global.

Mr Miller
IPIN Member and investor

Despite having some reservations about the concept of the investment format as it was something new to us, we did invest in a few opportunities. The Brick Lane project has now matured early and our funds returned together with accrued interest repaid. We were therefore happy to re-invest those funds into the Urban Villa Aldgate development.

Mr L Gray
IPIN Member and investor

I met with the IPIN team at the property exhibition in London and since then we have developed a strong relationship. This has encouraged me to make two further investments with them and I am looking forward to working with them for many years.

Mr Curl
IPIN Member and investor

Over the 3 years of this project, it has been central in helping me change my financial horizon from damage-limitation following other failed projects through to a position of actually now having choices and options with regard to my financial future.

Mr Green
IPIN Member and investor

I decided to invest with IPIN Global following my own due diligence that included speaking with a couple of existing IPIN Global investors. I'm happy to report that all 3 units have terminated and in the case of one of these, I reinvested straight away into another investment.

Mr W
IPIN Member and investor

I invested with IPIN and everything went smooth and the funds were back in my account within the contracted time. ROI as prescribed and I can very much recommend IPIN's solutions as a part of ones portfolio.

Mr Halvardsson
IPIN Member and investor

I've been a member of IPIN for over two years and in that time I have always been impressed with their friendly professional behaviour. They have never pushed me, and have always dealt with any questions or problems swiftly and precisely. The products seem almost too good to be true, but as I have just exited my first application, I am now a believer!

Mr Trimby
IPIN Member and investor

After reading the IPIN advertisement I was wary but carried out due diligence before committing. My main concern was for the safety of my investment but this was covered by the legal process. Having now received the profits on my first sale I'm delighted with the financial outcome. Thank you IPIN!

Mr Field
IPIN Member and investor

I am almost embarrassed to discuss the 40% plus returns we have received, as people just cannot believe this is possible without there being a huge risk. With such confidence in the IPIN model, we are immediately re-investing a large proportion into another project. My wife has earmarked the excess for a shopping trip in the UK!

Bernard & Maureen
IPIN Members and investors

We looked at various property investments and monitored IPIN Global for some time prior to deciding to invest in the Raithwaite Cottages project. This proved to be an excellent investment with a 39% annualised return.

Mr & Mrs D
IPIN Members and investors

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.

Waleed N.
IPIN Member and investor

When I first read about IPIN, I thought the returns were too good to be true, but they have proved me wrong, as, I invested and exited in just over a year and 9 months later with a whopping 48% return.

Andrew Nicol
IPIN Member and investor

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 a consultant. I am planning to further expand my portfolio based on the results achieved by the IPIN team.

Mr. V.
IPIN Member and investor

As we approach retirement conservative and secure investment programs are the only ones we considered. The IPIN opportunities fit our investment goals perfectly and has performed as advertised. Who can argue with such annualised returns in the current economic environment?

John and Nancy Howell
IPIN Members and investors

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.

Mr and Mrs S. Davies
IPIN Members and investors

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

Larry L
IPIN Member and investor

For me, IPIN's investments still represent the best thing I can do with my money - not only are they secure, but the returns are contractual too. Another thing I really like is how the projects to which IPIN apply their development funding always seem to be really sound - they're not just good investments, they always have a lot going for them as traditional investments.

Mr. M. Green
IPIN Member and investor

I invested with IPIN 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 with IPIN after some research. I have been kept informed of progress over the whole period until my unit was sold.  The strategy has worked extremely well for me and I elected to reinvest into another venture using the return plus the original investment.

Mrs. E. Davies
IPIN Member and investor

commercial property investment

How stable is the UK commercial property market? In truth pretty much the same as residential, largely stable, no shocking movements in either direction overall, but with vast regional differences; namely a much better performance in London and the south than in the north.

According to data from the FTSE UK All Property Index Returns (covers commercial property in all sectors, retail, office and industrial), returns have been largely in the past 12 months, with ever-present income returns supporting small capital gains.

The FTSE All UK Property Total Return Index (NAV) for the 12 months is 10.22%. From other indices in the series we can see that the office sector has performed best in the last 12 months, with returns of 14.56% in the last 12 months, compared to 8.20% and 7.39% in retail and industrial respectively.

According to Knight Frank, pessimism is badly affecting commercial property investment in the UK and they expect very few investments outside of the prime central London market until things improve. The firm's UK Market Outlook report for Q2 2011 reads:

"After all, if investors are getting more risk averse it is difficult to see anyone other than the brave venturing into the murkier parts of the secondary and tertiary markets.

"For instance, the market for retail property in secondary locations needs root-and-branch reform; including a large amount of stock switching to other uses. One would need a very compelling reason and long-term horizons, to enter such a market."

However, the report goes on to talk about only-just-secondary property that is often successfully passed off as prime in rising markets, recommending investing in commercial property as an antique buyer might spot an overlooked gem.

"Such ‘only-just-secondary’ assets acquired during the periodic bursts of pessimism can appear canny purchases six months later. Sentiment changes rapidly, which creates opportunities."

So, what to make of it; is it stability or is it stagnation, are commercial property investments UK dead or alive? Well, in all honesty it is well and truly alive and kicking. At the market bottom in 2009 commercial property investment funds made a fortune investing in distressed properties in central London which have gone on to do very nicely indeed as it recovered, and now people need to identify the next London as it were.

The UK has a lot of great cities that are currently on their knees, Liverpool and Manchester perhaps the two most notable. We couldn't give commercial property investment advice without saying that all investors should be considering investment-worthiness on a deal-by-deal basis and trusting their instincts to help them make the right property investment. Commercial property investment yields have been improving since 2009, and this is mostly because shrewd investors are ignoring the doom and gloom and capitalising on the commercial investment property bargains.
